Super easy, super tasty, these Balsamic Apricot Pork Chops are on the table in minutes. A quick pan sauce with balsamic, Dijon and apricot jam... so good. Serving nutrition info does not include mashed potatoes.
2 lbs pork chops4-8oz bone-in, 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick
1/4cupapricot jam(See Note 1)
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.
