Healthy BBQ pork that delivers big flavor

Southern Skillet BBQ Pork

Here’s a great alternative to taking all day smoking a pork butt and cutting lots of fat and calories off at the same time. You can serve this on whole grain bread or accompanied with side dishes (as pictured). After the pork is finished cooking, you can even shred it as you would pulled pork.

Southern Skillet BBQ Pork

Serves: 4


  • 4 boneless pork chops, 3/8-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup bottled reduced-fat Italian dressing
  • 1/4 cup bottled barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Cooking Directions:
Stir together Italian dressing, barbecue sauce and chili powder. Pour over pork chops in shallow dish or plastic bag. Marinate from 30 minutes to overnight in the refrigerator. Heat nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; drain pork chops and place in skillet. Brown chops on both sides; add remaining marinade. Cover pan and simmer over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.

Serving Suggestions:
A deceptively easy skillet supper delivers big flavors. Accompany this family favorite with buttered corn and a green salad.
