"The Southwestern version of 'pork chops and applesauce.' They'll want the recipe!" — ranger1
Watch video tips and tricks
1 (16 ounce) jar
jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
ground white pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons
salt and pepper to taste
mesquite chips, soaked
The sauce also made a good marinade. I let the chops marinade overnight - added to the flavor I think
I gave this recipe 3 stars because I would have given the chops themselves 5 stars and the salsa 1 star. My husband and I really didn't care for the salsa; I found the white pepper incredibly overwhelming (1 tbs.??) and even though I can appreciate the taste of onions, this was just a little too much for me. Next time I'll just make the pork chops and skip the salsa.
Yum! We loved this, but I did modify it slightly. I seasoned the chops first with an herb blend and let them sit for an hour. I didn't have applesauce so I used one fresh, chopped apple and a bit of apple juice instead in the salsa. The smoked flavor of the chops was to die for!! Don't overlook that part of the recipe.
Excellent recipe. Be careful with the jalepenos..only use one. Great flavor & easy to make. Kids loved the chops & we loved the salsa.
This is unbelievable ! It was surprizingly excellent! Just get good meat and it is no fail !
Nobody at our dinner table cared for this dish.
I am looking for the perfect way to Barbeque pork chops - Way #1 - not my favourite so the search continues - to be fair - husband loved the "hotness of the onion and coolness of the apple sauce" - we differ on this one.
Great recipe with lots of flavor. Will definitely make again!
