Juicy panfried pork chops coated with a delicious apple-cider glaze that is out of this world!!! Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops look like a 5 star dish but are incredibly easy to make. You'll never want to eat a plain boring pork chop again!

Sometimes I really want to impress people or just my teenagers with a beautiful main dish. My Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops are great because they can be a simple or fancy dish. The best thing is that they are really easy to make with just 5 ingredients. My favorite kind of recipe, simple and beautiful. The recipe works great with any size center-cut pork chop, thick or thin, but be sure to adjust the cooking time. Either bone-in or boneless pork chops are great options too. Be very careful not to overcook the pork! Overcooked pork will taste tough and be hard to chew. Make sure the oil is shimmering and the pan is hot before adding the pork chops so they will brown. Each side will only take a few minutes to cook depending on the size of the pork chop. I hope you enjoy my Apple Cider Pork Chops as much as I do!
