Easy Apricot Pork Chops
Canned apricots nicely complement the tender pork in this wonderful entree sent by Ron Gardner from Grand Haven, Michigan.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.

- 4 bone-in pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons cold water

- Place apricots in a food processor or blender; cover and process until coarsely chopped. In a large skillet, brown pork chops in butter over medium-high heat. Add apricots. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 7-10 minutes or until meat juices run clear.
