The sweet and spicy pepper jelly sauce creates a beautiful glaze on the pork chop and keeps the meat moist and tender.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Melt 1 Tbsp. butter with oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops, and cook 8 minutes; turn and cook 10 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 150°. Remove from skillet, and keep warm.

Step 2

Add flour and jalapeño to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until flour is golden brown. Add wine, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of skillet; cook 1 minute or until almost completely reduced.

Step 3

Add chicken broth, and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. Whisk in pepper jelly until melted and smooth. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining 2 Tbsp. butter. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Return pork to skillet; turn to coat. Serve pork with sauce.

Step 4

Note: We tested with Braswell's Red Pepper Jelly.

This is a keeper. My husband really liked it. I cooked the pork chops on low longer than the recipe indicated.

At first, I was a bit apprehensive of the ingredients called for, but this sounded interesting and my husband usually stays away from pork chops because they tend to be dry; however, this was excellent and my husband had seconds and the rest for lunch the next day. He even kept commenting on how “killer” the sauce was and requested that I make this again.

This was delicious. We used homemade pepper jelly instead, and it was the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I will definitely be trying this again.

This was a big hit will all 4 of us, even the 10 y/o picky eater. Used a mini sweet red pepper instead of jalapeno and boneless chops. The sauce is to die for. We will definitely make this again.

This is delicious! I left out the hot peppers and used Braswell's Green Pepper jelly instead of the red. Will be making this one again.

Good recipe and easy to make. I expected it to be a little spicier. We used homegrown jalapenos - and sometimes they taste more like bell peppers. The end result was a nice sweet sauce - we served the pork with green beans almondine, wild rice and peas.
