New England Recipes: Maple-Garlic Pork Chops

Pork chops cooked with maple syrup

A key ingredient often found in New England recipes is pure maple syrup. With this recipe, I’ve tried other types of syrup, and the pork chops are still tasty. They’re not nearly as delicious without the real maple syrup, however. There’s just something wonderful about the marriage of pork and maple syrup!

Holle’s Maple-Garlic Pork Chops recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 6 boneless pork chops, about ½-inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1/3 cup pure Vermont maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions: In a skillet, quickly brown chops on both sides in the oil. Place chops in a baking dish.

Mix maple syrup, vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic in a microwave-proof bowl and heat until well blended. Pour over pork.

Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper.

Cover dish and bake at 375 degrees for about 50 minutes. Baste chops half way through cooking time.
