I suppose you could do this in a 375F oven with a lot of attention to basting. But a better solution would be to use ridged grill pan on the stove top.

Pierino's on the right track.

The recipe author writes in the headnote 'We grilled the pork because we were grilling other things, but this sauce would also work wonderfully as a pan sauce." That implies that the alternative cooking method would be in a pan on the stovetop.

As a pan sauce, you will have more challenges by using a ridged pan versus one with a smooth bottom.

Of course, you can cook in the oven, but be careful. Thinner pork chops cook rather quickly, you will have to monitor them closely. That's easier to do on a grill or stovetop.

Good luck.
