what’s cookin’, good lookin’?

Ingredients:
  • 3 one-inch thick boneless pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 cups of apple cider
  • 3 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar
  • 1.5 tablespoons of spicy brown mustard
Pat pork chops dry and rub with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  It should not be smoking.
Sauté chops until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
Mix cider and brown sugar well and add to skillet.
Simmer, uncovered,  until meat is almost cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
Remove pork chops to a plate.
Add vinegar and mustard to sauce and boil, stirring to scrape up any brown bits, until reduced to about 1/2 cup, about 8 minutes.
Return chops with any juices on plate to skillet and simmer until meat is just cooked through and sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes per side.
I like to serve the chops with mashed potatoes that you can pour the cider sauce over and sauteed asparagus. Yum!
mmmmmmmmm.

mmmmmmmmm.

My recipe is the remix of  Pork Chops with Sweet-and-Sour Cider Glaze at epicurious.com

Ps.  I considered taking more pictures of the cooking process, but slabs of raw meat are kind of not so attractive.  So hope this will be good enough!
