Before there was BBQ sauce, this was the sauce that my Grandfather used. This sauce has a nice spicy tangy taste, but it's not overpoweringly barbecue flavor, so you taste the flavor the meat instead of the overwhelming taste of barbecue.
3/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
6 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 (3/4 inch) thick pork chops
3 tbsp molasses
1. In a small saucepan combine all ingredients and over medium heat, bring to a slow boil. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until the sauce reduces slightly and the flavors blend together.
