By Paula Deen
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
  • Servings: 10

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons ancho chili powder
  • toasted and chopped optional garnish pecans
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 (10 oz) about 1-inch thick center cut bone-in pork chops
  • 2 tablespoons divided olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup butter maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the chili powder and salt and sprinkle evenly over both sides of the pork chops.

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium, and cook until desired doneness, about for 4 to 6 minutes.

In a small skillet, over medium-high heat, add the balsamic vinegar and cook until reduced by half. Stir in the maple syrup and chicken stock. Cook over medium heat until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes.

Transfer to a serving platter and serve with the maple syrup. Garnish with toasted pecans, if desired.
