Honey Apricot Pork Chops

Christie Biggers

"These are absolutely divine!! So simple and so beautiful...this is definitely a trick up my mom-sleeve! They look like they require so much more effort than they really do. I love to serve them with roasted asparagus topped with a homemade lemon vinaigrette or some green beans."

  • Ready In

  1. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels, and sprinkle both sides with salt and black pepper. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and brown the chops well on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
  2. Stir in honey, apricots, and garlic; cover, and simmer until the pork is tender, about 8 minutes. An instant-read thermometer, inserted into the center of a chop, should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Sprinkle with parsley, and serve chops topped with the apricots and pan juices.

Outstanding - followed the directions + I added sweet onions. Next time I would add more honey. I used canned Apricots and dried them with a paper towel before stering them in. What a treat

This was very disappointing. The pork tasted fine, but the apricots stayed tart and the pan juices were thin. The apricots added nothing to the flavor of the pork. Next time, I will use a recipe...

This is a simple and delicious recipe! I added a lot more honey and used a whole can of apricots. Be generous with the salt on the chops. I served this with rice to absorb some of the sauce and...

I substituted apricot preserves instead of fresh apricots and used bone in pork chops instead of boneless and they were very good.

I substituted 1/2 a sweet red onion, sliced, for the garlic, sauteeing it for a few minutes in the olive oil before browning the meat. I also substituted 4 (peeled, sliced) peaches for the apric...
