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 was excited to try this recipe after seeing all of the good reviews but I really did not like this at all, nor did anyone in my family. The apple cider vinegar was overwhelming. I followed the recipe exactly and the cook on my pork was perfect, but the apple cider vinegar ruined this dish. Also, the glaze remained liquidy and less glaze-like after cooking down for 4 minutes, so I added cornstarch and tried to fix the glaze. I usually like Chef John's recipes but this one can go.

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.

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.

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.
