Pork Chops with Apple Cider Glaze-Hunk Of Meat Monday

All of our pork customers have picked up their orders except for a few outliners like Katie at PinkePost and Val at Wag’nTales. We will not fault them, they do win the prize for the farthest Zweber Farms customers. So we know you have your freezers full of tasty pork chops. If you are new to the Zweber Farms meat, you might be uncertain about cooking chops with the bone in. Here is a great simple recipe I made up today to start you off.

Pork Chops with Apple Cider Glaze

  • 4 bone-in Zweber Farms pork chops
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.

Mix apple cider, brown sugar and mustard into a small sauce pan. Bring to boil and reduce to 1/2 cup.
Heat oil in large fry pan. Salt and pepper both sides of chops. Brown chops on both sides.
Place chops on baking sheet (okay, I made six chops instead of four). Pour about a tablespoon of glaze over each chop. Save some glaze for finish. Bake for about 8-10 minutes in oven. The pork should be lightly pink inside.
I served the pork chops with cranberries, brown rice, romaine lettuce salad and tall glass of cold Organic Valley milk.

  1. What a great glaze for this time of year! I love pork and apple flavor together. Amen to the pink pork chops. I remember my mom cooking them until they were Frisbees. The new cooking guidelines for pork are welcomed by me! Thanks for sharing at Hunk of Meat Monday.

  2. Thanks for the recipe. I have pork chops in freezer and will use this recipe tomorrow night. Yum!

  3. I haven’t had pork chops in a long time. These look absolutely scrumptious.
