This delicious recipe from Kevin Is Cooking is sure to please your family, or next dinner guests. Be sure to grab Bodacious Olive’s Apricot Balsamic (Oh, and don’t forget to stock up on all your holiday oils!)
Now, let’s start cooking:
- 4 – 8 oz pork chops bone-in, 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick (2 lbs total)
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup chicken stock
- 1/4 cup apricot jam – use a bit of your favorite Apricot Balsamic Oil here too!
- 1/4 cup Bodacious Olive 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, Bodacious Olive 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.
