  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  • Combine the onion powder, garlic powder and oregano; sprinkle over pork chops. In a small saucepan, combine the apricot preserves, lemon juice and lime juice; cook and stir over low heat for 10 minutes or until preserves are melted.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook chops in oil over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until lightly browned on one side. Turn chops; generously brush apricot glaze over cooked pork. Cook 8-10 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve with remaining glaze.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled pork chops and remaining glaze in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through slowly in a covered skillet until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, turning occasionally and adding a little broth or water if necessary.

    This was really good served with the Teriyaki Zucchini and Onions on the same page and Hawaiian rolls.
