Oven-baked Pork Chops in Maple Barbecue Sauce

Sorry about the long list of ingredients in this sauce, but it really does take only 5 minutes to make, then cooks into a heavenly, sticky, spicy goo.

 
 

This recipe is taken from How to Cook Book One.

Method

First of all mix the olive oil with the lemon juice, then place the pork chops in the roasting tin with the chopped onion tucked amongst them. Season with a little salt and freshly milled black pepper, then brush the chops with the oil and lemon juice. You can, if you like, do this well in advance, just cover with a cloth and leave in a cool place. Then, when you're ready to cook the pork chops, pre-heat the oven to gas mark 6, 400°F (200°C), then pop them in on a high shelf and cook for 25 minutes exactly. Meanwhile, combine all the sauce ingredients in a jug and, using a small whisk, blend everything, thoroughly. Then, when the 25 minutes are up, remove the roasting tin from the oven, pour off any surplus fat from the corner of the tin and pour the sauce all over, giving everything a good coating. Now back it goes into the oven for about another 25 minutes, and you will need to baste it twice during this time. After that, remove the roasting tin from the oven and place it over direct heat turned to medium. Then pour in the red wine, stir it into the sauce and let it bubble for about 1 minute. Then serve the pork chops on a bed of Very Red Rice with the sauce spooned over and garnish with the sprigs of watercress.

Very Red Rice

This was a recipe created for Comic Relief, hence the title, and I always have a good giggle thinking back to the filming of those hilarious cookery demonstrations that were later screened on television.
