This recipe came out of a an old (1960’s) cookbook put together for a lake area homeowner’s association. I loved the sound of it, but canned pork and beans use mustard in their recipes and I’m deathly allergic so I had to adapt it and the flavor profile was GREAT.
2 tablespoons butter
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper
4 thick bone in pork chops
1/2 sweet onion, sliced thin
1 can great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup tomato sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons jalapeno ketchup
- Melt butter in cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
- Saute onions 1-2 minutes
- Generously season chops on both sides.
- Add chops and quickly sear to a golden brown.
- Whisk together the tomato sauce, brown sugar and jalapeno ketchup.
- Fold beans into sauce.
- Arrange beans around pork chops, cover and simmer on LOW 15-30 minutes until chops are cooked through.
