  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups apple cider apple juice will substitute
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary fresh
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 6-ounce boneless pork chops 1 inch thick
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil vegetable oil works too
  • 3 cloves garlic minced, about 1 1/2 teaspoons


  • In a bowl, mix the apple cider, apple cider vinegar , mustard, rosemary, and red pepper flakes. Set aside. 
  • Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle each pork chop on both sides with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper per pork chop. 
  • Heat butter in oil in a 9-inch or larger heavy skillet over medium high heat. 
  • Cook the pork chops, turning once until golden brown on each side and a thermometer reads 145 degrees in the center; about six minutes per side. It's OK if they look a little pink in the center. 
  • Transfer the pork chops to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. 
  • To the same skillet the chops were in, add the garlic and cook 30 seconds on medium heat. Add the apple cider mixture, and use a spatula to scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. 
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer until the mixture measures about 2/3 of a Cup of liquid. This should take about 25 minutes. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to the sauce, and stir to combine.  
  • Add the pork chops back into the sauce, and turn to coat with the glaze. Allow the chops to rewarm over medium heat one to two minutes before serving .
