Pork Chops with Apple Cider Glaze

Pork Chops with a glossy apple cider glaze is really easy to prepare. While there's no starch or extra butter involved, the glaze reduces quickly to a thick, rich, sweet-tart apple syrup that is DELISH! This recipe tastes like Autumn. It has a ton of flavor and not many ingredients. In fact, it's a shinning example of what a few well placed ingredients can do for a plain piece of meat. The glaze is insanely easy to prepare and makes this pork chop dish one of the best I have ever eaten. It is the perfect pork chop recipe for Fall.

INGREDIENTS
  • 6 {6 ounce} boneless center-cut pork chops
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
WHAT TO DO
  • Season pork chops with salt and pepper. 
  • Heat oil and butter in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. 
  • Cook pork chops until golden brown on both sides and just a hint of pink in the center, about 5-7 minutes on both sides. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the middle should read at least 145 degrees F. 
  • Transfer pork chops to a plate and remove skillet from heat. 
  • Stir garlic into the same skillet and return to medium-high heat; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in vinegar and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of your skillet. 
  • Add apple cider and Dijon mustard, bring mixture to a boil and cook until sauce is reduced and thick, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in rosemary and red pepper flakes; season with salt and black pepper to taste. 
  • Return pork chops to pan to coat with sauce and warm about 2 minutes.

The pork chops turn out so moist and juicy and the glaze is A-ma-ZING! Seriously, it's thick and sweet, a little tangy and slightly savory. You simply can't go wrong with this recipe. 

Serve your family these wonderful pork chops, you'll be glad ya did! PROMISE!
Enjoy!

For an easy weeknight meal, save and freeze leftover sauces or glazes from previous meals in ice cube trays. The cubes can be reheated in a saute pan when you need a quick sauce.
