Cider-Glazed Pork Chops

Cider-Glazed Pork Chops

The brine serves as both a tenderizer and a flavor enhancer, but it will not leave the meat overly salty. Serve these chops atop a bed of steamed spinach with a side of barley or quinoa.

Oxmoor House OCTOBER 2006

Ingredients

  • 1 cup apple juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 (6-ounce) bone-in center-cut loin pork chops (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup sliced shallots
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar

Preparation

1. Combine 1/2 cup apple juice and next 5 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add pork; seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.
