Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops

Apples and pork always go well together.  This is an apple cider glaze that you place on top of the chops after you fry, bake or grill them.  It will caramelize so you don't want the glaze to make contact with your cooking surface or else it might stick.

Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops

4 pork chops
salt & freshly ground pepper
extra virgin olive oil 

Grill or bake your pork chops until fully cooked.  While they are cooking, mix together the following ~

1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground crushed red pepper

Cook to a simmer.  In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup cold water and 2 tsp cornstarch.  Whisk into cider mixture.  Cook until it thickens.  Brush onto cooked pork chops.
