Pork chops with apple cider glaze

    45 min

    Pork chops with a glossy apple cider glaze is really easy to make. There's no flour or extra butter involved so the sauce reduces really quickly.

    Serves: 6 

    • 6 boneless pork chops
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Season pork chops with salt and black pepper.
    2. Heat oil and butter in a heavy pan over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops in the hot oil mixture until browned on both sides and pork is slightly pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Remove pan from the heat; transfer pork chops to a plate.
    3. Stir garlic into the pan and place over medium-high heat; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Pour in vinegar and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add apple cider and Dijon mustard, bring mixture to the boil; cook until sauce is reduced and thick, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in rosemary and chilli flakes; season with salt and black pepper to taste.
    4. Return pork chops to the pan to warm slightly, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

    We loved this one! I had bone-in chops on hand so I used those. I also subbed apple juice for the apple cider, which worked out beautifully. As it was reducing I became impatient and decided to thicken it slightly to a glaze consistency with a cornstarch/water slurry. Both Hubs and I really enjoyed these and I will definitely be making them again! Thank you Chef John!  -  12 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good, tangy flavor. When I think of a glaze I usually like a sticky, almost crispy coating, this didn't cook down and coat the pork chops like a glaze would. But all in all very simple and great taste!  -  04 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I don't eat meat, so I have no instinct for cooking it. I made these for my family and they loved it. Really simple.  -  20 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
