Apricot-Soy Pork Chops

Apricot-Soy Pork Chops

I found this Cooking Light recipe on MyRecipes and it sounded so good I decided to make it for dinner.  It was pretty easy to make and tasted wonderful.  I loved the tender pork with the sweet and salty apricot-soy sauce.  My whole family liked it and they all said they would want to eat it again which is a good thing because I want to make it again!

Apricot-Soy Pork Chops

Heat a large skillet coated in cooking spray over medium heat.  Season both sides of the pork chops with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste.  Place into the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until done.  Remove from the pan; keep warm.

Add the olive oil to the same skillet over medium heat.  Add the diced onion and cook, stirring often, for 4 minutes or until softened. Add the apricot preserves, soy sauce, and minced garlic; cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often, until thickened.  Add the pork and it’s juices back to pan, turning to coat.  Place onto a serving plate and sprinkle with green onions.  Serve immediately   Enjoy.

    I won? Seriously? Oh my gosh…I am so excited! Thanks for the give-away, Pam!

    Oh- and these pork chops are drool worthy this morning, Pam! I love fruit with pork (usually apples), and the apricot is a nice change. I find myself making more pork and chicken these days, and I am always looking for a fresh, new way to serve them. I am sure my family will love this recipe. I can’t wait to see what you served with this dish!

  3. I am ALWAYS a fan of the sweet-and-salty combo. That marinade sounds delicious!

  4. Pam these look wonderful, I love all the ingredients! I know this would be a hit at our house!

  5. Yum. Looks like another good one for Fall! Also you previous post had my mouth watering. I love the combination of chocolate and banana. I put chocolate chips in my banana bread sometimes!
    Have a great day!

  7. The sauce looks so yummy. I love the combination of sweet and salty flavors. I’m adding it to my “recipes to try” list.

  8. i would never have predicted how useful apricot preserves would turn out to be in my everyday cooking. they make so many things much more tasty than they normally would be. 🙂

    Thank you for this wonderful flavorful yet on the easier side. I hate to say that last part “on the easier side” because I’m afraid it will lesson the value of this dish. Some people may think because it’s easier it’s not as special. But it really is a special dish. The flavor is something you’ll be pleased with and proud of. You’ll want to feed all of your friends and family because it tastes that good! Ok I’ve said enough!
    Bon appétit
