Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Brown pork chops, turning once, for about 1 min per side; transfer to a plate. Add garlic and onion to pan and sauté for about 2 min or until starting to brown. Add barbecue sauce and water and bring to a boil, scraping up bits stuck to pan.
Return pork chops to pan and turn to coat in sauce; reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 5 min or until just a hint of pink remains in pork. Place cheese slices evenly on top of each pork chop. Broil for about 2 min or until cheese is bubbling.
Use pork chops that are about 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick and be sure not to overcook them for the best taste and texture.
