Happy New Year! I'm always surprised by everyones' traditions for the New Year, but serving pork for good luck on the first day of the New Year seems to be universal. Let's kick this one off with tender, juicy glazed pork chops that are seared and flavored with a spicy red pepper peach glaze. Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner, but special enough for a dinner party.
Keeping things simple and easy, these Spicy Red Pepper Peach Glazed Pork Chops are ready in less than 30 minutes and seriously delicious! The spicy red pepper peach glaze keeps the pork tender and saucy - just the way we like it!
ONE SECRET INGREDIENT CREATES THE MAGIC...
I always like to have a few "secret ingredients" in my arsenal for creating special dishes, and for these tender and perfectly saucy pork chops I'm using Robert Rothschild's Hot Pepper Peach Preserves.
You may have had these sweet and spicy preserves as an appetizer - buttery crackers schmeared with cream cheese and drizzled with Hot Pepper Peach Preserves is always amazing.
But what's even more amazing is the magic that happens when you use this as a glaze on some thick pork chops - you've never had pork so tender and tasty!
I like keeping things simple, quick and delicious, and nothing is more simple that searing some thick chops and drizzling them with warm Hot Pepper Peach Preserves to cook up into a seriously yummy glaze.
The easiest, no-fuss, most amazing pork chops ever, ready in less than thirty minutes, from start to finish! And the sweet and spicy glaze is unbelievable - finger licking good and a match made in heaven!
Dinner is ready - hope you love these as much as we do! And wishing you a wonderful, happy and healthy New Year!
4 (8-ounce) pork chops (bone-in, 1-inch thick)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 jar (10.5 ounce) Robert Rothschild Farm Hot Pepper Peach Preserves
HOW I MAKE THESE:
1. Place a cast iron skillet in oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel. Rub both sides with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
3. In a small saucepan, heat the Hot Pepper Peach preserves over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it comes to a low simmer.
4. Remove skillet from oven and place on burner over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes each side.
5. Brush ¾ of warmed Hot Pepper Peach Preserves over the top of the pork chops. Cover skillet with foil.
6. Roast in oven until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 140 degrees (about 8-10 minutes).
7. Before serving, scrape the glaze that is left in the skillet and combine with reserved Hot Pepper Peach Preserves.
8. Serve pork chops immediately with Hot Pepper Peach glaze. Enjoy!
NOTES: Cooking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of the pork chops.
