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


  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
