These quick-and-easy smoked pork chops are fully cooked so they only need to be warmed in a frying pan, under the broiler or on the grill, taking all of about 10 to 14 minutes.
When you have a taste for ham but don't want to mess with a butt or shank portion or even a ham slice, smoked pork chops are the perfect stand-in. You can even treat them like ham by serving with sweet potatoes or potato salad and glazed pineapple.
