Good morning, dear readers! It is a rainy, rainy week here in western North Carolina. I have several recipes to share with you that I prepared the second week of 2012. I noticed that center-cut pork chops were on sale at my favorite grocery store and instantly thought of a recipe that I have been making since David and I were married 27+ years ago. I found the recipe in a cookbook I received as a wedding gift and it quickly became a favorite recipe.
Family Pork Chops

Salt and pepper to taste
6 pork chops
3/4 cup ketchup
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons Vinegar
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper the chops and place them in a lightly greased, shallow baking dish. Top each chop with an onion slice. Make a sauce of the remaining ingredients and pour over the chops.
Cover and bake at 300 to 325 degrees for about 1 and 1/2 hours. Uncover for the last 20 minutes.
