Maple Balsamic Glazed Pork Chops


INGREDIENTS

PORK CHOPS:
4 bone-in, center cut pork chops
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

MAPLE BALSAMIC GLAZE:
1/4 cup maple syrup
3-4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp beef broth
1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic smashed
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 sprig fresh thyme
salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

MAKE THE GLAZE:
  1. In a small saucepan, combine all glaze ingredients.  Heat over MED heat until it reaches a low boil.  Cook until sauce reduces down, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Set aside.

COOK THE PORK CHOPS:
  1. Place cast iron skillet in oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Pat chops dry with a paper towel, then rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Remove skillet from oven and place on burner over MED-HIGH heat.  Place chops in the skillet, you should hear them sizzle immediately.  Let cook 2-3 minutes to sear.  Brush pork with glaze.
  4. Flip pork chops over, brush the other side with the glaze, and transfer skillet back to the hot oven.  Bake until a thermometer inserted into the center reads 140 degrees F (about 5-8 minutes, depending on the thickness of your pork chops).
  5. Transfer pork chops to a plate, tent loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve pork chops with a bit of the glaze drizzled over the top if desired.
