  • 2 lbs pork chops 4-8oz bone-in, 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam (See Note 1)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • parsley for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Season pork chops with kosher salt and pepper.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat combine chicken stock, apricot jam, balsamic vinegar, mustard, garlic, thyme and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Melt butter in a large oven proof skillet (like cast iron) over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear until golden brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes. Place in oven and roast until completely cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. (See Note 2)
  • When done remove from oven and pour glaze over pork chops, turning to coat and serve immediately.


1. I use sugar free apricot jam, but you don't have to.
2. Cooking time may vary depending on thickness of pork chops. I used 3/4” thick.
