Bacon-wrapped pork chops

There’s no denying that pork chops are a staple of home cooking. They’re relatively cheap to buy and easy to make. But they can be rather boring and bland when just grilled plain. You might try these Sweet & Sour Pork Chops. Bacon adds the flavor and fat that a bland pork chop needs.  Slather a little of my favorite homemade bourbon BBQ sauce on them and you’ll be making them every week!

There are so many ways to make pork chops. You can grill them, fry them, or bake them. I’ve tried every which way, as I’m sure you have. No matter what, it often leads to a dry and tasteless piece of meat.

Bacon pork chops are not exactly diet food, but once in a while I think it’s okay to cheat and add a slice or two of bacon to your pork chops.

How to Make Bacon-Wrapped Pork Chops

Pork chops and bacon are a perfect pairing. Just make sure to choose a quality, cured, thick-cut bacon. The smokier the better. It adds a great flavor to the meat.

You’ll need two pieces of bacon for each pork chop. Start at one end and wrap the bacon in a spiral pattern around the chop. Start the next wrap where the last one left off and try not to overlap too much.

I cook pork chops on the stove top, which allows for the bacon to cook evenly and at a rate that won’t cause it to burn. If you noticed that the bacon is cooking too fast, just adjust the temperature down a bit. It will take around 5-6 minutes per side for the pork to cook through.

You can cook these on the grill, if you want, but make sure it’s not set too high or the bacon will scorch before the pork is done.

What to Serve with Bacon Pork Chops

These bacon wrapped pork chops go really well with cheesy baked broccoli, bacon & jalapeno corn salad or with roasted cauliflower. I also like to serve this with a classic wedge salad, or if I’m not counting calories, a stove top Mac & Cheese.

This pork chop will definitely add flavor to your meal. If you’ve tried it, we’d love to hear how it turned out for you in the comments section below.
