These Saucy Maple Apple Pork Chops are amazingly tender, hugely flavorful, and the perfect autumn dinner. Easy enough for weeknights yet good enough for weekends.
We’ll chomp on chops in just a bit, but first let’s break down the title of this dish.
Starting with the word saucy. Despite the fact that this word has multiple meanings (including sassy,) it also means covered with sauce. Really, it does.
Next up is maple. Pure maple syrup is typically reserved for the fluffiest of pancakes. We usually break out the honey for our pork chops, but it’s autumn. Maple, it is.
And then there’s apple…
Miss Apple hardly needs talk. It’s the fall season and it’s pork. That’s why apple.
So there we have it. Tender, juicy pork chops cooked to perfection.
Smothered in a sweet ‘n savory maple apple sauce.
Thinly sliced apples get cooked down a bit, along with coarse mustard (with pretty seeds) and apple cider.
The result is a wonderfully sweet, salty, and tangy sauce that you’ll want to bathe those pork chops in.
This saucy sauce is au jus style; not a thick glaze. If you’re looking for a thick glaze, add 1-2 TB cornstarch with dissolved water (1-2 TB) and then add it to the boiling sauce. (Just be sure to fully dissolve cornstarch first, or you’ll get clumps that are pretty much there forever.)
Saucy Maple Apple Pork Chops are quick, easy, and oh-so-yummy.
Happy October noshing 😊Print
