Ingredients

PORK CHOPS:

  • 4 bone-in, center cut pork chops
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

MAPLE BALSAMIC GLAZE:

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3-4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp beef broth
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic smashed
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

MAKE THE GLAZE:

  • In a small saucepan, combine all glaze ingredients.  Heat over MED heat until it reaches a low boil.  Cook until sauce reduces down, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Set aside.

COOK THE PORK CHOPS:

  • Place cast iron skillet in oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Pat chops dry with a paper towel, then rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Remove skillet from oven and place on burner over MED-HIGH heat.  Place chops in the skillet, you should hear them sizzle immediately.  Let cook 2-3 minutes to sear.  Brush pork with glaze.
  • Flip pork chops over, brush the other side with the glaze, and transfer skillet back to the hot oven.  Bake until a thermometer inserted into the center reads 140 degrees F (about 5-8 minutes, depending on the thickness of your pork chops).
  • Transfer pork chops to a plate, tent loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Serve pork chops with a bit of the glaze drizzled over the top if desired.
