  • 4-6 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 pork chops
  • 2 red onions finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped thyme leaves
  • 100ml cider vinegar
  • 150ml maple syrup


    1. Pour 4 tbsp olive oil into large frying pan (preferably NOT non-stick) over a medium heat. Season the pork chops with 2 tsp salt and add to pan when oil is hot.
    2. Cook for 3-5 mins on each side until nicely browned all over and cooked through. Transfer cooked chops to warmed plate, cover with foil and keep warm.
    3. If very little oil left add an extra tbsp and fry the onions and thyme leaves. Season with salt and stir fry for 3 mins until onions have softened but not browned. Pour in the vinegar and using a wooden spoon deglaze pan scraping any browned residue from the chops. Bring to a simmer for 2 mins then stir in maple syrup and 1 tsp pepper.
    4. Bring back to simmer, cook for 7-10 mins until the sauce has reduced to a sticky glaze. Check for seasoning then pour sauce over the pork chops and serve.

This was excellent and very easy. I was worried that the maple syrup would make it too sweet, but the vinegar counteracts it. I do not understand why Good Food have only included this as a member recipe. It was in the 'Everyday' section of their magazine so would not be covered by any copyright restrictions.
