Maple Glazed Pork Chops

Yes, yet another pork chop recipe. There will be a lot of them this year so I hope you like pork, I have a freezer full! This one is a little different. Maple syrup, garlic and ginger make a thick, delicious glaze that coats the chops.  It's a quick and easy recipe and the glaze tastes really good over sweet potatoes too. You can do this with any kind of pork chop, I have bone in chops that are about 1/2 thick. They cook up pretty quickly, but you can use the thicker cut chops, or even the boneless loin chops, just make sure to adjust your cooking times accordingly.

What You Need:

4 pork chops
1/2 cup maple syrup, the real kind, not pancake syrup
1 tsp minced ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper

What To Do:

Season the chops with salt and pepper and sear the first side in a non stick skillet over medium-high heat. If you are using the super thin chops, cook both sides first and remove to a plate while making the glaze. Otherwise, when you go to flip your chops over, add in the garlic and ginger and pour the maple syrup over the top. Let reduce for about five minutes or until the maple syrup is really thick and bubbly. You'll end up with about half of the syrup left. Remove the chops to a plate, and pour the glaze over the top.
