The combination of the brown sugar and the maple glaze was an overwhelming taste that actually removed all natural taste of the pork chops and instead they simply tasted like maple candies - good if that is what you are aiming for. The taste was delicious, but it was not was I was anticipating. I would recommend that you try this recipe if you really love the taste of maple and are looking for a very sweet dinner idea. I may try this recipe again; however, it may not be right away.
- 1/2 cup all -purpose flour
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 bone-in pork loin chops (we used 2 bone-removed pork chops)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar (we doubled this)
- 1/3 cup maple syrup (we doubled this)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch (we doubled this)
- 3 tablespoons water (we double this)
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add pork chops and shake to coat. In a skillet, brown chops on both sides in butter. Place in an ungreased baking pan. Bake uncovered at 450 for 20-25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a skillet, bring the vinegar to a boil. Reduce heat; add maple syrup. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth (you must do this before you add it to the vinegar/maple syrup mixture); then add to maple syrup mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
- Place pork chops on a broiler pan; sprinkle with brown sugar. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until sugar is melted. Drizzle with maple glaze.
