Ingredients

How to make it

  • Take pork cops out of fridge, let come to room temperature and sprinkle generously on both sides with salt and ground pepper - set aside for now.
  • Take one bowl, add dry mustard and a dash of salt and pepper to 3/4 cup of flour and mix till incorporated. This is to be used to dredge your pork cops in.
  • With other bowl, add ketchup, grape jelly, soy sauce, wet mustard, worcestershire sauce, minced garlic and all herbs as listed.
  • Add 1/2 cup water to sauce and mix till blended well. It maybe that some of the jelly didn't break down - that's ok, it will while cooking.
  • Grab the heavy-duty skillet of yours, turn on the heat to a medium-high beneath the skillet and let get quite hot.
  • While skillet is getting hot, grab those pork chops and dredge in seasoned flour, shake off excess.
  • Put olive oil in skillet first, then add butter. If pan is ready, place pork chops into skillet.
  • Do not move, (no, not you, the pork chops of course, let them get caramelized on one side - it may take up to five minutes)
  • Turn pork chops over and let them brown for three minutes.
  • Take 1/2 cup of wine and carefully pour into skillet to deglaze. If not using the red wine (or instead simply drinking it, just skip this step and go to next - no one will know)
  • Then add sauce from bowl directly into skillet, turn down the heat from under skillet to be on low heat and let simmer at least 45 minutes
  • Put lid on skillet while your dish simmers. This dish only gets better as the more time you simmer the dish, the more tender your pork will be. I usually let it simmer for 1.5 hours.
  • When ready, serve over egg noodles (1st choice) or penne (2nd choice) or rice. Reserve sauce for when you may reheat dish for the next day - delicioso!

    This was awesome! I didnt have jelly so I used whole berry cranberry sauce. :) It seemed to work out just fine. I think this sauce would be wonderful on chicken as well! The whole family loved it. Thank you!

    I made this for dinner tonight, followed it exactly as stated, even stopped at the store for grape jelly. No doubt about it, these were the best chops I've ever made. The sauce (or gravy) was exceptional and believe me, nothing is getting thrown out. Thanks Diva, you made my day. :)

    This was really good. I had to change it so much, I can't say it's even this recipe, but the changes reflected the "wacky ingredients" I had in my cupboard. Instead of ketchup, I only had some homemade steak sauce (w/ketchup in it), no soy sauce and only enough Worcestershire sauce for what was called for in the recipe, so I used some Balsamic Vinegar ans a little Sesame Oil (don't know why the Sesame Oil, just sounded good). and the only wine I had on hand was Madeira, so I used it. Like I said, this wasn't anything like it was supposed to be, I'm sue, but it was outstanding anyway!! Thanks!!

    This sounds great, I am going to marinate the chops in the sauce for the day, then let the sauce drip off each chop before dredging it in the flour mixture and following the recipie from there. I hope it works.

    This was very good. I didn't have grape jelly so I used strawberry. Even my "I never eat Pork" son ate two fat chops and wanted his grandma's leftovers. (EWWWW) I can't wait to make it again with Grape jelly.

    In order to cook this in the crock pot, are there any special considerations to take? I'm thinking mix up the sauce and dredge & brown the chops - then put them in the crock & pour sauce over top. How long and on what temp would you cook?

    OMG! OMG! OMG! Need I say more!!! But I will...the pork chops were so tender and the gravy had such a rich dark color and flavor! It was earthy and smokey and slightly sweet!
    This gravy is to die for...perfect with noodles to soak up the sauce, so that you don't have to lick the plate...as much! =)

    I made these as written! I used a really good tasting Shiraz red wine to deglaze the pan! I pan seared as written then placed the chops ( 7 bone-in) in a large baking dish and poured the gravy over them. Then I simmered them in a 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours! My skillet wasn't big enough to accommodate all the pork chops, but this worked perfectly in the oven.

    I would give this 10 forks if I could! I added my photo! =)

    My mother came in the kitchen when I was making this and said, "What on earth are you doing? Are you nuts?" And she was the first one asking for bread to sop up all the sauce when I served it. You would never in a millions years think these ingredients could make something so delicious and ... well ... elegant. Thanks, Divalicious. Four stars.

    I find that kids like it as well and love to help make it since it contains one of their favorite ingredients - the ketchup and grape jelly of course!

    It's also nice to melt cheese on top of chops prior to serving...for a different touch...
