Pork chops in bittersweet sauce (costillas de cerdo en salsa agridulce)


2 kilograms pork chops


½ cup ketchup
½ cup soy sauce
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons dark rum
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger


½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon, Seville orange or grapefruit juice

Cooking instructions: 

Mix the sauce ingredients and refrigerate overnight.

On the following day rub the seasoning on the pork chops and marinate for 2 hours, then add the sauce and let it all rest for at least another hour.

Turn on the oven at 450ºF, place the pork chops on the grill (with the oven tray below) and bake for 15 minutes.

Lower the oven temperature to 350º F and grill for approximately 1 hour; brush occasionally with the sauce and turn the chops so that they are evenly browned on both sides.
