Ingredients:  
6 center-cut pork chops (or the type you prefer, thickness is up to you)
ground black pepper
granulated garlic
brown sugar, for each chop (I use light, but dark will work)
salt (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Line large broiler pan with foil (if not using heavy duty foil. line it twice, makes for easy clean up) Also. you just need the bottom of the pan, not the rack. Place chops in pan, and season heavily with pepper and garlic (and note I mean HEAVY). Lightly salt, if desired. Then top with about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Place under broiler, (if using gas - use 2nd from top slot, if electric, either 2nd from top, or 3rd). If chops are really thick, for gas broiler, put on bottom slot. Cook about 10 - 15 minutes, until sugar is bubbly and turning quite dark. The dark color is mostly just the sugar getting brown, not the meat. Turn chops, then repeat with spices and sugar (yes another 2 tablespoons), and cook another 10 or 15 minutes, till done. Just keep watching them to make sure they don't burn, but remember the sugar is going to bubble and get dark, so account for that--just make sure pork is cooked totally through (or to the doneness you prefer). Cooking time is of course going to vary based on thickness of chops.
Figure two chops per serving, so if you’re having company, just increase the amount.. Or if you’re just cooking for yourself, you can cut it back, although I always liked the leftovers cold.
