Apple Glazed Pork Chops

Things around here are finally seeming normal. After the big move from SC back home to NJ, and making through the busy holiday season, I’m getting used to living in the colder weather and getting used to living in a high-rise apartment. I love the convenience of having a bank, drugstore, and nail salon in my building and a grocer right across the street. The Light Rail stops right outside our building and the Exchange Place Path station is about 3 blocks away providing us easy options to get into NYC or Hoboken. Bailey loves all the natural light we get but is still adjusting to hearing people (and dogs) in the hallway making their way to the elevators.

You’d think pork chops are as easy to create recipes with as chicken is, but for some reason I’m always at a loss of what to make with a chop. I’d been hanging onto this recipe for quite sometime and finally got around to making it. Apple and cinnamon is such a sweet and savory combination for pork chops

-2-4 boneless thing pork chops
-1 tablespoon EVOO
-1 cup apple juice
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
-1 tablespoon soy sauce
-2 teaspoons corn starch
1. In a small sauce pan, combine the apple juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, soy sauce, and corn starch. Bring to boil, then simmer to thicken.
2. While sauce is simmering, heat the EVOO on a frying pan and saute pork chops about 5 minutes per side, adding a little of the glaze to the pan while cooking. Serve immediately, with glaze generously poured over top.
