Baked Saucy Pork Chops
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
This was a good recipe with subtle, but good, flavor. It was easy to make and my family really liked it.
I made this for dinner. I omitted the water and used red wine for the vinegar. It was very good and would make it again. I think the sauce would taste good on salmon too.
I browned the chops in ghee which has a higher smoke point than butter. Sauce is delicious even though it was a bit thin. Will make these chops again but will omit the water. This sauce, I think, would also be great on poultry.
The chops were not done in 20 min. and the sauce was too thin. I will not make this again.
My family liked the tang of the vinegar and the sweet of the maple syrup. We were surprised that the chili powder blended and didn't dominate the flavors. Great recipe!
This was the 2nd try for this recipe. I reduced the cider vinegar to 2 tsp.
Very good recipe. Like others, I would have preferred a thicker sauce. Next time I will try omitting the water, and in deference to my husband's preferences will also reduce the vinegar to 2 teaspoons. We smacked our lips over the maple syrup-chili powder combination.
The method of cooking was quick, easy and allowed lots of time to prepare the rest of the meal, but the maple syrup in the sauce combined with the spicy ingredients just didn't please my taste buds. To solve the runny sauce, I reduced it down by cooking at high heat for several minutes, but then added cornstarch and water to thicken.
Decided to make this recipe because it was for two. And the reviews seemed ok. Didn't turn out the way I had hoped. The sauce didn't thicken up at all and we kept thinking it needed a steak sauce or 57 on it plus more salt. Added 1 tsp liquid smoke.
We enjoyed this very much, but next time I may leave out the cider vinegar.
