Warning – the sauce does not smell or taste very good on its own! But it makes the best grilled pork chops I have ever had. Serve it with grilled pineapple slices and rice.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¾ cup ketchup
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 (1-inch thick) boneless pork chops

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine ketchup, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, butter, mustard, oil, salt, cloves, and pepper in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer, 5 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. 2 Place pork chops in a zip-top bag and pour cooled sauce over them. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, to overnight.
  3. 3 Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. 4 Cook the pork chops on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes total, flipping as needed. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  1. I thought this marinade was good, and I thought it was really good as a BBQ sauce by itself. I don't know why the recipe submitter warned that it wasn't good. The only thing I did was left out the vegetable oil and used Allspice in place of cloves.
  2. Instead of grilling the chops I put mine in a deep skillet with a little bit of leftover marinade and sautéed it in the sauce for about 25 mins. Came out good.
