Pork Chops with Raspberry Barbecue Sauce

Grilled pork chops are brushed with homemade barbecue sauce made with Apple Raspberry Juicy Juice® 100% Juice and raspberries. The fresh element of ginger adds a contrasting savory balance to the flavors and complements the grilled pork. Serve with steaming hot corn on the cob and a big garden salad to make it a fun summer meal for the family.
Makes: 1 cup barbecue sauce and 4 pork chops
Total Time: 1 hour
Active Time: 25 minutes


1 cup Apple Raspberry Juicy Juice® 100% Juice

1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 teaspoons raspberry vinegar or cider vinegar

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger root

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt, divided

4 bone-in pork chops, about 1-inch thick


  1. Combine Apple Raspberry Juicy Juice® 100% Juice, raspberries, tomato paste, brown sugar, vinegar, ginger, smoked paprika and 1 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, whisking often, and cook until the raspberries have broken down and the sauce has thickened, 7 to 9 minutes. Remove from the heat and set ½ cup of the barbecue sauce aside for serving.
  2. Preheat grill or grill pan for medium-high direct heat grilling. Sprinkle pork chops with the remaining 1 teaspoon salt over both sides.
  3. Oil grill rack and immediately add pork chops. Allow to cook about halfway, rotating to form grill cross-hatch marks if desired, 4 to 6 minutes total. Flip pork chops over and brush with barbecue sauce. Continue cooking, rotating if desired, 4 to 6 minutes or until an instant read thermometer registers 145 degrees when inserted in the thickest part of a chop.
  4. Briefly turn over to brush the remaining sauce over the chops and then transfer to a serving platter. Serve the pork chops with the reserved barbecue sauce.
