Sweet Chili Glazed Smoked Pork Chops

Juice from one medium orange* (about 3 tablespoons)

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon mustard powder

5-6 smoked pork chops (or 1 ham steak)

Line a baking pan with aluminum foil (for easy clean-up) and spray foil with cooking spray. Arrange pork chops in a single layer in pan. If using a ham steak, blot off any excess liquid with paper towels before applying glaze.

Combine orange juice, brown sugar, chili powder, garlic and mustard powder in a small bowl and mix well to make a glaze. Using a basting brush or small spoon, coat top side of pork chops with glaze; discard any excess.

Bake pork chops at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until chops are heated through and glaze is caramelized. Baste again with any residual glaze from the pan if desired. Smoked and cured pork chops and ham steaks are already fully cooked – we’re just bringing these to temperature.

*Use whichever citrus you have (lemon, grapefruit, orange, etc.) or even use prepared fruit juice. I didn’t actually measure this so I’m guessing on the amount. You’ll need enough liquid to make the brown sugar mixture the consistency of ketchup.
