Apple Butter Glazed In-Bone Pork Chops

And so the apple-inspired recipes continue! This time, we're pulling another of the week's recipes to make today's dish. The idea for these apple butter glazed in-bone pork chops came from a summer dish we made, which used peach jam as a glaze. It was a favorite of ours then so we opted to make that summer entrée into a fall main course.

Since we had just made homemade crock-pot apple butter, I thought this would be the perfect recipe to try out. And we loved it; the sweet and salty combination was perfect together! Paired with couscous and Brussels sprouts, this meal made for the perfect fall dinner.

  • What You'll Need
    • 2 in-bone pork chops (more if you are serving more people)
    • Apple butter, it can be homemade or from a grocery 
    • Brine
      • 1 TBSP salt
        3 cups water

  • What You'll Do
    • In a tupperware, combine water and salt to create brine for the pork chops to sit in.
    • Coat each pork chop, on each side, with apple butter. Put in the brine and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours (the longer the better).
    • Heat the grill up, place tinfoil down, then add the pork chops. Cook until the meat is done.
    • Baste more apple butter to the meat, again on both sides, and let caramelize (about two minutes per side).
