Apricot-Glazed Pork Chops

In this recipe, apricot jam is the base for a sweet and spicy glaze with which you cover the pork chops. These apricot-glazed pork chops are a wonderfully flavorful grilled main dish.


Preparation time: 15 minutes

Grilling time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

1 piece fresh ginger

2 cloves garlic

1 cup apricot jam

3 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

4 loin pork chops, cut 1-inch thick (about 2 pounds total)

Oil for brushing chops

Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal or gas grill.

  2. Grate the ginger.

  3. Peel and mince the garlic.

  4. In a small saucepan, combine the jam and vinegar.

  5. Cook, stirring over low heat, until the jam melts.

  6. Stir in 2 teaspoons ginger, the garlic, soy sauce, and cayenne pepper.

  7. Remove from the heat and set the glaze aside.

  8. Trim all but 1/4 inch of fat from each pork chop.

  9. Brush the chops lightly with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  10. Place the chops on a well-oiled grill grid.

  11. Grill the chops for 3 minutes on each side.

  12. Brush both sides generously with the glaze and grill for another 4 to 5 minutes or until done, turning once.

  13. Cut to determine doneness.

    The chops are cooked when the meat has a light pink blush and there’s no sign of pink near the bone.

  14. Simmer the remaining glaze for 2 to 3 minutes.

  15. Drizzle over the grilled chops before serving (if desired).
