When Speed Racer and I first got married, pork chops were a staple. They’re cheap, fast, easy, and most of the time when I made them they were pretty bland. Lately I’ve been finding ways to spice up the usual pork chop in different ways. One of the favorite recipes I found was a Maple glazed pork chop.
I found this recipe on Taste of Home.com and as always, modified it a little bit. Start by sprinkling the pork chops with thyme, salt, and pepper. Brown the pork chops in oil.
Add 1/2 cup of brewed coffee, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard, and 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce. Simmer in the pan until it is reduced by half. Return the pork chops to the skillet and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
I differentiated from the recipe some by taking the pork chops from the skillet and sauteing some mushrooms and pecans in the sauce for a few minutes. I then added them on top of the pork chops. It was delicious . It’s a very simple recipe and a great way to dress up some simple pork chops. Enjoy!
