I was looking for a simple yet tasty change in my pork chops last night. I wanted something a bit sweet to remind me of my moms fried apples she used to make with her chops. So I rounded up a few ingredients, Maple syrup being the main one, and came up with this little recipe. It turned out so good that I know it will now be a part of my regular go to recipes. Give it a try and let me know what you all think as well.
- 4 pork chops
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- salt/pepper to taste
Brown pork chops in a oven safe skillet, I prefer cast iron of course. (2-4 minutes per side) You aren’t trying to cook them through. Just brown them.
While they are browning, combine the other ingredients in a small bowl.
Drain any fat off the chops once they are browned and cover with the sauce mix.
Place in oven at 350 and cook for 34-45 minutes till pork is done and sauce is thick and sticky.
*You could do this as well with chicken.
**Alternately you could do in a slow cooker. Instead of placing in oven, put in slow cooker for 3-4 hours on low heat.
