Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fancy molasses
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 pork loin chops about 1-1/4 lb (625 g)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Method

In bowl, stir together ketchup, mustard, molasses, vinegar, Cajun seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, onion and garlic. Scrape into large freezer bag. Add chops; seal and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Freeze for up to 1 month; thaw in refrigerator, 24 hours.)

In skillet, bring chops with marinade and 1/2 cup (125 mL) water to boil; reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until fall-apart tender 40 minutes. Transfer pork to serving platter. Increase heat to medium-high and cook until reduced to about 1 cup (250 mL), about 8 minutes; pour over chops. Sprinkle with parsley.
