Pork Chops with Apricot Sauce

Pork Chops with Apricot Sauce

With only a can of apricots and a couple of spices, you can transform ordinary pork chops into a sweet and saucy entrée.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chop, 2 apricot halves, and about 2 tablespoons sauce)


  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 none (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (1/2 inch thick)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 none (15-ounce) can apricot halves in extra-light syrup


Combine first 3 ingredients, and sprinkle over both sides of pork chops.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove pork from pan; set aside, and keep warm.

Drain apricots, reserving syrup. Add 6 tablespoons syrup to pan; cook over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining 1/2 cup syrup and apricots; cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve sauce over pork.
