  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, soda, garlic, and pepper until the sugar has dissolved. Set the sauce aside. Place the pork chops on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake the pork chops in the preheated oven until the juices start to run clear and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chop reads 120 degrees F (49 degrees C.) Transfer the pork chops to a baking dish big enough to lay the chops into the dish without overlapping. Pour the sauce over the chops, and cover the dish with foil.
  4. Bake the chops until no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).


  • Cook's Note
  • I have tried this recipe with Dr Pepper, both regular and diet; Coca-Cola, and root beer. My kids love the sweet flavor! This is a recipe I devised for a hospital that I work at.

Great flavor but next time I would make it on the stove so that the sauce will reduce down and become a bit thicker.

I used the rootbeer as it say's in the notes. I used only one 16 0z bottle and there was plenty of sause. My family loved this and has requested it again. Next time I will try cola.

very easy an quick prep work for this meal and it tasted great. Both my husband and my daughter asked for seconds and ate every last bit of it. I followed the receipe exactly and will be sharin...
