Honey Apricot Pork Chops

Recipe by  

"These are absolutely divine!! So simple and so beautiful...this is definitely a trick up my mom-sleeve! They look like they require so much more effort than they really do. I love to serve them with roasted asparagus topped with a homemade lemon vinaigrette or some green beans."

Directions

  1. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels, and sprinkle both sides with salt and black pepper. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and brown the chops well on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
  2. Stir in honey, apricots, and garlic; cover, and simmer until the pork is tender, about 8 minutes. An instant-read thermometer, inserted into the center of a chop, should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Sprinkle with parsley, and serve chops topped with the apricots and pan juices.

Outstanding - followed the directions + I added sweet onions. Next time I would add more honey. I used canned Apricots and dried them with a paper towel before stering them in. What a treat

This was very disappointing. The pork tasted fine, but the apricots stayed tart and the pan juices were thin. The apricots added nothing to the flavor of the pork. Next time, I will use a recipe that uses apricot preserves instead of fresh apricots.

I'm not a pork chop fan but these were really good. I seasoned the chops with a heavy dose of chili powder since we like a kick in our food. I also did not have fresh apricots or canned, so I used apricot preserves instead. I will definitely make this again..very easy and quick!

This is a simple and delicious recipe! I added a lot more honey and used a whole can of apricots. Be generous with the salt on the chops. I served this with rice to absorb some of the sauce and it was a hit!

We really liked this. We had steamed asparagus with a warm lemon vinaigrette as she suggested and it was a beautiful counter-point. Brilliant. Yes, once the chops were done I took them out and mashed up the peaches so that they were more of a sauce. (store did not have ripe apricots but our Colorado peaches were nice and ready)

Absolutelly DELISH!!! We didn't have fresh parsley or fresh garlic, so we subsituted. Unfortunately we didn't have honey either. The apricots weren't ripe so we also used a can of lite apricots. This was fabulous and I can't wait to try it exactly as the recipe is written. I wouldn't trade for a steak dinner. BTW, the apricots don't have to be ripe. We sliced them thinly and they tasted better than the canned. Next time I may thicken the sauce a bit with cornstarch. Or not. I'm so satisfied!!

I made this tonight with just 2 boneless pork chops. Hubby and I loved the flavor. Made some changes, because I didn't have fresh apricots. Used a handful of dried apricots cut into pieces and a tbls of sugar free apricot preserves and 1 tbls of agave (hubby is diabetic). Should have used less olive oil, but the flavors were great. This will also go great with chicken (bnls thighs or breasts). Served with tomato, corn, onion salad from this site; great compliment. Terrific dinner. Hubby had offered to go out, but said that this could be served in a great restaurant. I'm smiling.

I substituted apricot preserves instead of fresh apricots and used bone in pork chops instead of boneless and they were very good.
