Apricot-Soy Pork Chops and Giveaway Winner

I found this Cooking Light recipe on MyRecipes and it sounded so good I decided to make it for dinner.  It was pretty easy to make and tasted wonderful.  I loved the tender pork with the sweet and salty apricot-soy sauce.  My whole family liked it and they all said they would want to eat it again which is a good thing because I want to make it again!

Heat a large skillet coated in cooking spray over medium heat.  Season both sides of the pork chops with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste.  Place into the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until done.  Remove from the pan; keep warm.

Add the olive oil to the same skillet over medium heat.  Add the diced onion and cook, stirring often, for 4 minutes or until softened. Add the apricot preserves, soy sauce, and minced garlic; cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often, until thickened.  Add the pork and it’s juices back to pan, turning to coat.  Place onto a serving plate and sprinkle with green onions.  Serve immediately   Enjoy.

    I won? Seriously? Oh my gosh…I am so excited! Thanks for the give-away, Pam!

    Oh- and these pork chops are drool worthy this morning, Pam! I love fruit with pork (usually apples), and the apricot is a nice change. I find myself making more pork and chicken these days, and I am always looking for a fresh, new way to serve them. I am sure my family will love this recipe. I can’t wait to see what you served with this dish!

    Sauteed Asparagus with Dijon Vinaigrette | My Best Cookbook — November 5, 2012 @ 9:33 pm

    [...] I wanted to find a simple but different recipe for the asparagus I had in the refrigerator.  I stumbled upon this recipe from Martha Stewart and decided to give it a try.  I adapted it a bit by adding a little garlic and sugar to the vinaigrette.  I loved the flavor the vinaigrette gave to the asparagus and it turned out really delicious.  This side dish paired nicely with the Apricot-Soy Pork Chops.
