I started out fixing another recipe, but didn't have all the ingredients, so came up with this recipe! The spice gives it a kick with lots of flavor! You can fix this recipe on top the stove or grill! you can make your own 5 spice by combining cloves, cinnamon, anise, and nutmeg!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1/4 cup grape jelly
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 smoked bone-in pork chops (7-1/2 ounces each)

Directions

For glaze, place first six ingredients in a small saucepan; bring just to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes.
In a 12-in. skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add pork chops; cook until bottoms are browned, 4-5 minutes. Turn chops; spoon glaze over top. Cook, uncovered, until chops are glazed and heated through, 3-4 minutes. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Chinese five-spice is a seasoning that adds both warmth and cool flavors to food. Blends vary, but it often contains star anise, Szechuan peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon or cassia bark and fennel.
  • In many cases, grocery stores only carry one type of smoked pork chop. If yours only has boneless, feel free to substitute for the bone-in chops.

    "I made this last night and was pleasantly surprised. Very quick (good thing I had already made the side dishes) and flavorful! I had regular pork chops, so I added smoke flavoring. Added 1/2 t of garlic powder and used ginger ale since I didn't have apple juice. O.M.G.!"
