These chops are flavorful, call for few ingredients and the dish comes together quickly. For fun, you can experiment with the type of carbonated beverage used. This recipe calls for Coca-Cola, but I like to use Dr Pepper for a little added sweetness, too.

Serves 4


  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 pork chops (each about 1/2-inch thick)
  • 1 cup Coca-Cola
  • 1 cup ketchup


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops and cook, flipping once, until browned on both sides, 5 to 6 minutes.

Stir together the ketchup and Coca-Cola in a small bowl and pour the sauce over the pork chops, turning the chops to coat. Bring the sauce just to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and allow to cook until the pork chops are no longer pink in the center and the sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes.

Serve the pork chops hot, with the sauce spooned over them.
