Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop)

Juicy, tender pork chops served with brown rice and steamed asparagus make an excellent family-friendly meal. The apricot glaze gives this dish a sweet touch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle salt and black pepper evenly over pork. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add pork. Cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove pork from pan, and keep warm.

Step 2

Combine preserves, wine, and ginger in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add preserves mixture to pan; simmer 4 minutes or until mixture thickens. Return pork to pan; cook 1 minute, turning to coat.

We didn't find the sauce to add enough to this dish.  It was okay, but nothing to try again.

Yes, a good solid recipe. Very tasty and easy, but I might do something more dramatic with fresh fruit for guests. My only change was to brush a little of the sauce on top of the chops after turning them (to help moisture retention) and splash a little wine into the pan first to cool it down a bit, then add the sauce. I never bothered to take the chops out, and the sauce didn't need thickening. I used Smucker's Low-Sugar Apricot Preserves, which are half the calories of regular and just as good. Served with steamed potatoes and green beans. Edit | Remove

This was a very delicious! Though very sweet, I served it with a mixed brown rice on the side, which made a great balance. I will definitely make it again. It was so easy! I used store-brand ground ginger from the pantry instead of getting fresh ground, which turned out just fine.

Fabulous. My husband and I both loved the pork! It was very tender and juicy. We served it with Sweet Potatoes and used a cranberry Riesling in the recipe. Will definitely make again.
