Oven Barbecue (4 ingredients fast)

Pin It

Even if you love to cook like Jocelyn and I, we all know there are some days that don’t have enough minutes in them and we need dinner without a lot of fuss. {yes, you know too well just what that means . . . }

This is one of our go-to dinners because it’s fast, easy, and a family favorite.  It’s especially good in the winter when you crave wonderful barbecue flavor, but don’t want to {or can’t} go outside to use the grill.  There are only 4 ingredients:  Your favorite barbecue sauce, Coca-cola, brown sugar and meat.  This sauce works with both chicken and pork chops {Our favorite is the pork chops}.


Oven Barbecue

1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce

1 1/2 cups Coca-cola

1/4 cup brown sugar

4 pork chops or chicken breasts

Place raw meat in a baking dish (single layer).  Mix the barbecue sauce and cola and pour over meat.  Sprinkle each piece of meat with a little brown sugar. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes*.  {How easy is that!}

Serve with your favorite sides  {Our family loves to sop up the barbecue sauce with a hot baked potato}.


Notes:  The general rule of thumb is equal parts barbecue sauce to cola – you can make as much or as little as you need to just about cover the meat.

You can use other sodas such as lemon-lime or root beer, but they tend to make it too sweet – the cola works just right.

*Thin cut pork chops will be done in about 30 minutes, thicker chops and chicken breast need about 45 minutes.
