Original recipe makes 6 pork chops Change Servings

Directions

  1. Season pork chops with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a heavy skillet 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. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). 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 a boil, and cook until sauce is reduced and thick, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in rosemary and red pepper 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.

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.

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!

Made this for dinner tonight and husband couldn't stop raving about it. I made a few simple adjustments. Coconut oil instead of vegetable oil to make it healthier. I didn't have enough rosemary on hand so I used italian seasoning too. I did slightly less red pepper flakes then a full tsp for the kids but they still thought it was too spicy. Next time I'll try just a 1/4-1/2 tsp. I also had to add cornstarch to thicken. Maybe it was my preference but I prefer the glaze to be more of a sauce. All very minor adjustments yet still incredibly simple recipe - highly recommend!!
