Time: 15 Minutes

Tender and juicy glazed pork chops with lip-smacking maple balsamic vinegar sauce.

Ingredients

PORK CHOPS:

4 bone-in, center cut pork chops

olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

 

MAPLE BALSAMIC GLAZE:

1/4 cup maple syrup

3-4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp beef broth

1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard

1 clove garlic smashed

1 sprig fresh rosemary

1 sprig fresh thyme

salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

MAKE THE GLAZE:

In a small saucepan, combine all glaze ingredients.  Heat over MED heat until it reaches a low boil.  Cook until sauce reduces down, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Set aside.

 

COOK THE PORK CHOPS:

Place cast iron skillet in oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Pat chops dry with a paper towel, then rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Remove skillet from oven and place on burner over MED-HIGH heat.  Place chops in the skillet, you should hear them sizzle immediately.  Let cook 2-3 minutes to sear.  Brush pork with glaze.

Flip pork chops over, brush the other side with the glaze, and transfer skillet back to the hot oven.  Bake until a thermometer inserted into the center reads 140 degrees F (about 5-8 minutes, depending on the thickness of your pork chops).

Transfer pork chops to a plate, tent loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

Serve pork chops with a bit of the glaze drizzled over the top if desired.
