26. Easy Apple Cider Pork Chops

Acid is a natural tenderizer. But when making pork, you’ll want to use apple cider vinegar for maximum flavor!

Let it simmer together, and dinner will be ready in no time.

27. Korean Style Pork Chops

If you’ve ever cooked pork, you’ll know it needs a decent amount of salt to enhance the flavor.

So what better way to get that salty goodness than a spicy marinade of soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and gochujang chili paste?

Use low-sodium soy sauce if possible. That way, you get the flavor without it overpowering everything else.

  • For the Pork Chops:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 4 bone-in pork chops, about 3/4-1 inch thick

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

  • For the Gravy:
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • Chopped parsley for garnish, optional


  • Mix together flour, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge each pork chop in the flour mixture until well coated. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter. Once melted and sizzling, add the pork chops. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove and set aside on a plate.
  • In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of butter. Sauté the onions until translucent and starting to caramelize. Add garlic and thyme and sauté for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Gradually pour in the chicken broth, scraping the bottom of the skillet to release any browned bits. Bring to a gentle simmer.
  • Slowly stir in the heavy cream. Continue to simmer until the gravy thickens slightly.
  • Return the pork chops to the skillet, spooning some of the gravy over them. Cover and let simmer for another 5-7 minutes or until the pork chops are cooked through.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley if desired.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • Adjust the amount of chicken broth based on your desired consistency.
  • You can use a mixture of buttermilk and heavy cream if preferred.
