Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops

We had some awesome pork chops for lunch today.  I don’t usually go for the apple and pork combo but this was pretty tasty.  Easy to do and quick to make.

  • 3-4 pork chops ~ I used boneless
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 Tbs cornstarch
  • 1 Tbs cold apple cider

Heat cup of apple cider over medium heat.  Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and cayenne; bring to a simmer. In small bowl whisk together tablespoon each of the cornstarch and cold apple cider.  Add to simmering liquid and stir until thickened.  Pour into bowl and set aside.

In same skillet heat olive oil.  Season pork chops if desired with a little salt and pepper.  Cook chops for 3 – 4 minutes each side.  Pour apple cider glaze over the top and cover. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes; until chops are cooked through.  Stir and flip the chops occasionally to keep the sugars from burning and sticking. Serve with extra glaze for dipping.
