Spicy Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork Chops

The inspiration from this came from repeatedly seeing maple-glazed-something-or-another all over the place here lately! Well, I guess it is that time of year, although I might add, maple isn't king in the Deep South. Cane and sorghum syrup are! I served these chops with my Quick Fix Southern-Style Green Beans, using canned green beans, onion and bacon and some roasted potatoes I cooked in the air fryer.

This is a wonderful glaze with just a bit of heat to kick things up just a bit. Be sure to spoon some of that delicious glaze over each pork chop before you serve them - you won't want to miss that. And remember, chops cook pretty quick, so keep an eye on them. They are so easy to overcook and although they are super delish when cook properly, there's nothing worse than biting into a chewy, tough, overdone pork chop.

Here's how to make my spicy sweet balsamic glazed pork chops, and as always, a quick swipe or scroll will get you straight to the recipe text, with measurements and full instructions.

Tip: When you're working with a sticky syrup or honey, spray the measuring cup with some oil and it will slide right out! Mix up the glaze ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce to medium low and let cook until thickened and reduced. Season chops, sear in pan, then brush glaze over, turning and brushing several times until cooked through.


I'm pretty sure that this glaze would be excellent on baked chicken too. I'll be trying that somewhere along the way too.
