Ingredients

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon finely chopped chipotles in adobo

1 teaspoon chili powder

One 15-ounce can tomato sauce

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Four bone-in pork rib chops

Potato salad or mashed potatoes and wilted spinach, for serving

Directions

  1. Bring the chicken broth, vinegar, maple syrup, chipotles in adobo, chili powder, tomato sauce, garlic, a generous pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and gently simmer until thick, stirring occasionally, about 25 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup of the sauce for serving.
  2. While the sauce simmers, adjust an oven rack about 4-inches below the heat source and preheat the broiler to high.
  3. Put a broiler pan or foil-lined baking sheet under the broiler to preheat for 5 minutes. Sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper, put on the preheated pan and brush with the some of the sauce. Broil the chops, brushing with more sauce, 2 to 3 more times, until cooked through and slightly charred, about 8 minutes (do not flip). Serve the pork chops with potato salad or mashed potatoes, wilted spinach and the extra sauce on the side.
