Super moist and delicious
method in which to prepare pork chops
for a quick and easy family meal...

Servings (4)
Prep: 5 mins. |
Cook: 25 mins.


Pork Chops:
4 pork chops, 1/2" thick
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, cut into rings
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Apricot-Dijon Glaze:
1 (11.5 oz. can) apricot nector (I prefer Kern’s)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning herb blend


Trim excess fat from chops, and sprinkle with kosher salt and ground pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil oil, and sear chops on both sides. Remove chops to a plate. Reduce heat to medium, add onions, and cook, while occasionally stirring, until translucent. Slide onions to one side of skillet, and return chops to to the other side.

Combine apricot-dijon glaze ingredients in a small bowl, then pour over chops and onions.

Cover skillet and reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes, until meat is tender and cooked through (turning the chops mid-way), or until center reaches 155 degrees.

--(I like to serve the glazed pork chops with steamed brown rice, and sautéed zucchini & yellow squash.)--

**IMPORTANT**: If using thicker than 1” chops, cook covered over medium-low heat for 30 minutes (turning the chops mid-way), or until center reaches 155 degrees.


TIP: This apricot-dijon sauce is also wonderful with halibut, salmon, chicken, or adding to pork roast to thicken drippings for gravy.
