  • 1/2 cup Red Apple Infused Balsamic Vinegar (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar (Packed)
  • 1/3 cup Apple Cider or Apple Juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • pinch Cayenne Pepper

Pork Chops

  • 4 Boneless, Center-Cut Pork Loin Chops (5-7oz Each, 1/2 To 3/4 Inch Thick)
  • 1 tablespoon Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil-Robust Intensity (EVOO Marketplace)
  • dash Sea Salt
  • dash Pepper (Ground)


Peach Sauce
Step 1
Combine all glaze ingredients in medium bowl; mix thoroughly and set aside.
Step 2
Trim chops and slash through fat and silver skin with sharp knife, making 2 cuts about 2 inches apart in each chop (do not cut into meat of chops). Pat chops dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper
Heat oil in heavy-bottomed 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to skillet and cook until well
browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn chops and cook 1 minute longer; transfer chops to plate and pour off any oil in
skillet. Return chops to skillet, browned side up, add glaze mixture; cook over medium heat until center of chops registers 140 degrees on instant-read thermometer, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; transfer chops to clean platter, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes.
Step 3
When chops have rested, add any accumulated juices to skillet and set over medium heat. Simmer, whisking
constantly, until glaze is thick and color of dark caramel, 2 to 6 minutes. Return chops to skillet; turn to coat both sides with glaze. Transfer chops back to platter, browned side up, and spread remaining glaze over chops. Serve immediately.
