Dish-o-the-Week: Maple Pork Chops

pork05

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!
