UPDATED --I FOUND THE RECIPE ON MY OWN--Dinner Today

I found the recipe for exactly what I was looking for on my own--

Apricot-Glazed Pork Chops With Honey-Mustard Carrots

Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 10 minutes.

Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 1 chop, scant 1 tablespoon glaze, and 2/3 cup carrots)

Ingredients

  • 1  (16-ounce) bag crinkle-cut carrot coins
  • 4  (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1/2-inch thick)
  • 1/4  cup  apricot preserves
  • 2  teaspoons  minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2  tablespoons  honey mustard

Preparation

1. Place carrots in a medium saucepan; cover with water. Place over high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 6–7 minutes or until tender.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Meanwhile, sprinkle salt and freshly ground black pepper, both to taste, over pork chops. Add chops to preheated skillet, and cook them 4 minutes per side, or until barely pink in the center. Combine preserves and ginger; add to skillet with chops. Cook until preserves are bubbly and hot, turning chops once to coat with glaze.

3. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the carrot cooking liquid. Drain carrots; return to same saucepan and toss with honey mustard. Add reserved cooking liquid and mix well; season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, both to taste. Serve carrots alongside chops.

Ladies I need a glaze to put over my pork loin. I have Apricot Preserves that I will be using.

Anyone have a recipe as to how to make the glaze to put over this? How do I do the glaze?? do I cook it on the stove or what I have never made a glaze before


Thank you

  • Just mix all your ingredients together and allow it to simmer(low heat) on the stove until you start seeing it thicken a little.

  • I've just heated it to the point that it will spread easily with a basting brush and brushed it on there. I never gave it a second thought! Now I will have to check back and see if there is a "real" way to do it!! LOL!
