Honey-Barbecue Pork Chops


SERVES 4       1 pork chop per serving

          1/4 cup mesquite- or- hickory- smoked barbecue sauce (lowest sodium available)

          3 tablespoons honey

          1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

          1/4 teaspoon salt

          1/8 teaspoon pepper

          4 very thin pork loin chops with bone (about 1 pound 4 ounces), all visible fat discarded

          1 teaspoon canola or corn oil

In a small bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce, honey, and cumin.

Sprinkle the salt and pepper over both sides of the pork chops. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the pork chops for 2 minutes. Spoon half the sauce over the pork chops. Turn the pork chops. Spoon the remaining sauce over the pork chops. Cook for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Turn the pork chops. Cook for 1 minute on each side, moving the pork chops around in the skillet to coat with the sauce, which darkens to a rich brown as it cooks.
