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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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...
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!
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.
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!
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!!
