These "Cider Glazed Pork Chops" are another of my Aunt Ann's recipes, so you know they are good! They just say Fall to me! This recipe comes together so quick and easy and it's special enough for company! The whole family will love it! Here is what you will need:
5-6 center cut pork chops (bone-in or boneless, doesn't matter)
salt and black pepper
2 Tbs. oil
1 Tbs. butter
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup apple cider ( can use apple juice)
1 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. Dijon or spicy brown mustard
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
pinch of cayenne ( optional)
Melt butter in oil in a heavy pan that has a lid. Sprinkle chops with salt and black pepper. Brown them well on each side.
While the chops are browning, mix all of the other ingredients in a bowl for the glaze. When the chops are brown, pour the glaze overall. Turn the chops over in the glaze to coat. Cover with the lid and simmer for 25-30 minutes on low or until the chops are tender and the glaze has thickened.
These are great served with Fried Apples!
