10 thick pork chops (always allow one per person)
12 ounces ketchup (about half a bottle)
1-1/2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small can crushed pineapple
Brown the pork chops slowly in a greased skillet just to a light golden brown; remove and transfer to an oven pan. Chops should be arranged in a single layer.
In a saucepan, mix the remaining ingredients, except for the pineapple; bring to a boil and cook to thicken.
Pour the sauce over the pork chops; top with the crushed pineapple, juice and all.
Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 275 degree oven for 2-1/2 to 3 hours.
Serve with green beans, creamed corn, and rolls.
