Maple Dijon Pork Chops

I’m always looking for ways to use maple syrup, so I can justify keeping it on hand.  Here’s a delicious way to prepare pork chops.  Don’t overcook the meat so it stays tender and juicy.   This recipe is quick, and everyone will like it.                   
Maple Dijon Pork Chops
  4         Pork Loin Chops -- about 6 ounces each
  1         Teaspoon  Minced Fresh Thyme or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
     ½    Teaspoon  Salt
     ½    Teaspoon  Pepper
  1         Tablespoon  Olive Oil
     ¼    Cup  Water or White Wine
     ¼    Cup  Maple Syrup
  1         Tablespoon  Dijon Mustard
Sprinkle pork chops with thyme, salt and pepper. In a large skillet,
Brown chops in oil. Remove and keep warm.
Add remaining ingredients to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook until
liquid is reduced by half.
Return pork chops to skillet. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12
minutes or until meat is tender, turning once. Serve with sauce.

Yield: 4 servings.


  1. I'm definitely going to try these chops, but that side dish of rice looks amazing too. Do you have a recipe for that too? :)

  2. Mmmmmm ... I love maple! Plus we just butchered the first of two pigs, so we're "high on the hog" as they say, and I needed some new and interesting recipes - thanks!!
