Rated as 4.54 out of 5 Stars

"Pork chops with a glossy apple cider glaze is really easy, and while there's no starch or extra butter involved, it reduces quickly to a thick, rich, sweet-tart apple syrup."

  • Ready In

  1. Season pork chops with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops in the hot oil mixture until browned on both sides and pork is slightly pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove pan from the heat; transfer pork chops to a plate.
  3. Stir garlic into the pan and place over medium-high heat; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Pour in vinegar and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add apple cider and Dijon mustard, bring mixture to a boil, and cook until sauce is reduced and thick, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in rosemary and red pepper flakes; season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Return pork chops to the pan to warm slightly, 1 to 2 minutes per side.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I really did not like this at all, nor did anyone in my family. The apple cider vinegar was overwhelming. Also, the glaze remained liquidy and less glaze-like after cooking down for 4 minutes, ...

Very good, tangy flavor. When I think of a glaze I usually like a sticky, almost crispy coating, this didn't cook down and coat the pork chops like a glaze would. But all in all very simple an...

I don't eat meat, so I have no instinct for cooking it. I made these for my family and they loved it. Really simple.

These pork chops were DELICIOUS!! Everyone in my family LOVED them, including my 4 year old. He kept asking for more "poke chops" haha! I made this recipe as directed. I know someone mentione...

It takes a lot longer to reduce the sauce. More like 20 minutes at medium heat instead of 3 to 4. Great tasting! I'd make it again.

We made a variation of this recipe and it was dynamite! Didn't have apple cider on hand so added 1/2 cup plain unsweetened applesauce plus 1 tsp. honey (didn't need to reduce the sauce). We al...

This was really easy to make. I loved the complex flavor. However you must cook the glaze down longer than stated in order for it to thicken.

Just searched around and was so happy to find this recipe again. I won't forget to save it in my recipe box this time! I made it about a month ago and have been thinking about it since then. ...

This is one of my top ten recipes. my family loves it, the only addition I make to it is that I chop two or three apples into cubes and add it when pouring the cider, the apples cook and taste ...
