Recipe by Chef John
"Pork chops with a glossy apple cider glaze is really easy, and while there's no starch or extra butter involved, it reduces quickly to a thick, rich, sweet-tart apple syrup."

6 (6 ounce)
boneless center-cut pork chops
salt and ground black pepper to taste
apple cider vinegar
red pepper flakes
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!
I love anything made by Chef John, but maybe it's because I did mine in the crock pot, but the sauce was like water, & did not thicken at all, even tho I cooked it in the fry pan for at least 10 min. Taste is OK - but not up to his usual level...
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.
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!
This was really easy to make. I loved the complex flavor. However you must cook the glaze down longer than stated in order for it to thicken.
Super easy, family loved it.
Everybody liked this one. Sauce is delicious. I didn't have dijon on hand so used regular mustard. In place of apple cider (which I also did not have on hand), used Boiled Cider (1/4 to 1/3 cup) from King Arthur Flour site. This syrup is thick, so sauce thickened nicely in minutes. T-a-s-t-y!
We made a variation of this recipe and it was dynamite! Didn't have apple cider on hand so added 1/2 cup plain unsweetened applesauce plus 1 tsp. honey (didn't need to reduce the sauce). We also skipped the mustard and red pepper because we didn't think the kids would like them (didn't matter - they didn't like the vinegar smell so didn't want the sauce anyway, but were perfectly happy with the plain pork chops). But don't skip the rosemary - it really brought all the tastes together.
