BAKED BARBECUE PORK CHOPS

This is an old recipe from Kansas.

4 (1 lb) boneless pork chops
1/2 tsp salt, divided
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tsp vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1/4 tsp celery seed
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 bay leaf

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sprinkle the pork chops with half the salt and the pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil, add chops and cook 3 to 4 minutes each side until browned. Transfer pork chops to an 8-inch square baking dish that has been lightly greased. In a small saucepan, combine the water, ketchup, vinegar, celery seed, nutmeg, bay leaf and other half of the salt. Bring to a boil and pour the mixture over the chops. Cover dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes or until done. Discard the bay leaf before serving.
