Dutch Oven Pork and Beans
2 thick cut bone in pork chops
15 oz can chickpeas - drained
15 oz can northern beans - drained
1/2 large onion chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. bbq sauce
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
2 T. molasses
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 t. dried mustard
2 t. dijon mustard
1 t. salt
1 T. fresh parsley finely chopped
Step 1: Sear the Chops
In a 12 inch dutch oven add 1 T. olive oil and turn burner on high. (Olive oil is completely optional in this step since the chops have adequate fat but it will add a little nuttiness in the end result.)
Sear chops on both sides until golden brown. Remove from pan. Turn heat to medium high.
Step 2: Make the Sauce
Step 3: Bake the Chops
Bake approximately 75 minutes or until pork is fork tender.
**Baking time will depend on size and thickness of the pork chops. Mine were 1 1/2 inch thick - bone-in.
Remove from oven and serve piping hot! As you can see from the pictures you will have a terrible time getting anyone to eat! :)
This served my family of four since these pork chops were so huge. You could easily get smaller pieces of meat to make sure everyone has their own chop to eat.
