This recipe was nice and quick. The addition of red pepper adds a nice spice to the dish, and the barbeque sauce was great. I couldn’t find thin chops with the bone in, so I used boneless and it was fine. I also didn’t trim the fat off beforehand because I cut it off when I’m eating them (fat adds flavor when they’re cooking…why would I want to get rid of that?). I’ll definitely make this one again. I served it with peas and pierogis. Yum!

To prepare sauce, combine the first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Place 1/4 cup sauce in a small bowl, and set aside.
