- Place a rack in a roasting pan. Trim fat from pork chops. Arrange meat in a single layer on the rack. Pour some hot water into bottom of pan up to the level of the rack. Cover pan with foil. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 2 hours or until pork is fork-tender*.
- For the red sauce: In a bowl, dissolve the brown sugar in the 1/4 cup hot water. Stir in the chili sauce, catsup, and dry mustard.
- Brush the sauce generously all over pork chops. Place the chops on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until the sauce begins to glaze chops, turning once. Heat any remaining sauce and pass with the chops. Makes 6 servings.
- You also can roast the chops, uncovered, on a rack in a roasting pan in a 375 degree F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into chops registers 160 degree F.
