Pork Chops with Apple Cider Glaze

Pork Chops with Apple Cider Glaze

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."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  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.

I really did not like this at all, nor did anyone in my family. The apple cider vinegar was overwhelming. Also, the glaze remained liquidy and less glaze-like after cooking down for 4 minutes, ...

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 an...

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.

These pork chops were DELICIOUS!! Everyone in my family LOVED them, including my 4 year old. He kept asking for more "poke chops" haha! I made this recipe as directed. I know someone mentione...

It takes a lot longer to reduce the sauce. More like 20 minutes at medium heat instead of 3 to 4. Great tasting! I'd make it again.

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.

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 al...

Just searched around and was so happy to find this recipe again. I won't forget to save it in my recipe box this time! I made it about a month ago and have been thinking about it since then. ...
