So even though the temperature has been 38ºC today I cooked glazed pork chops for lunch. Just call me dedicated (or crazy!!!!!!) Crazy I maybe but when you take your first mouthful of this juicy pork and heavenly sauce you will understand. It is beyond good! There isn’t tons of sauce, just enough to glaze the chops and make then super delicious. It is rich and sticky and if you are anything like me you will want to pick the bone up and suck it clean!!! Not only are they delicious when I say these fall under the category easy pork chop recipe, I mean it! Simple, delicious and quick. That is a dinner everyone can get excited about!

I urge you to use bone-in pork chops, they are always juicier! Pork has had such a bad reputation as a dry chewy meat, but if you cook it until it has an internal temperature of  62ºC(145ºF) it will be cooked through but still juicy and tender. I like to do this by searing it in a pan and then finishing it in the oven; I think you get a more evenly cooked piece of meat. (Just be very careful as the frying pan handle is super hot and burns on your palms are super painful!

The sauce is thick and sticky with a lovely sweetness but a bite from the vinegar and mustard. The rosemary just works perfectly and I really really really recommend that you use the fresh lemon at the end. The combination is divine! Honestly lipsmakingly amazing!

  9. Place the frying pan back over a medium heat (Remember the handle is hot!!!!!)
  10. Add the beef stock, maple syrup, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard and chopped rosemary and stir well.
  11. Bring to a simmer and scrape the bottom of the pan to deglazed all the browned bits.
  12. Simmer for 2 minutes until thickened

  1. Maple syrup is my new favorite thing! Especially when I can pair it with something savory. I’ve been looking for a new dish to try for dinner and this is the one!

      Thank you Lauren, and I agree maple syrup is such a great addition to savoury dishes. I love the colour it gives 🙂 (was well as the taste)

  3. I hardly make pork chops at home, and then I see recipes like this and wonder why not, and then I forget again. I’m leaving the window tab open in hopes I remember haha. Any excuse to pull out the cast iron skillets…

      I know exactly what you mean!
      In our supermarket you can buy raw chicken from the deli counter, so I always stop there first, then head for the ground meat section and buy mince (Because we have a meatball and burger habit!!!) and then forget to go to the last aisle and look at the cuts of meat. It is only when I remember a recipe that I think to go there. And my memory is terrible, seriously the baby brain never left me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😉

    It does not matter how many times you tell me that pan handles are hot when they leave the oven I will still touch them… Usually when I am finishing a sauce with them whilst the meat is resting 😮

    Delicious sounding and looking pork chops 😀

      It is so easily done. When I was in the restaurant the chefs would often shake flour over the handle if it was hot, like a sort of warning. I sometimes think it would help and other times I think I would still forget!!! What I need is a silicone hand cover that I can slide on once the pan comes out of the oven. (Wonder if anyone does this???? It could be the start of something!!! “This time next year we’ll be millionaires”)

    That sauce looks amazing! I love chops and cook mine the same way – stove top and then oven. It’s amazing how fast they cook – almost not enough time to pull together a sauce. Love how simple yours is –

      I would love to try these how many min in oven?

        Hi Jamie,

        I have updated the recipe as during a conversion to a different recipe card the instuctions got a little scrambled. I would recommend 6 minutes in the oven. If you have the real extra thick pork chops they may need a couple of minutes longer, but standard grocery store ones (like the ones in my photos) that 6 minutes in the oven.

        Hope that helps 🙂
