Maple Candy Pork Chops

Maple Candy Pork Chops

My friend Rory coined the name when she was serving these to her 3-year-old. Her rule: Whenever a dish is remotely sweet — and thanks to a maple syrup marinade, this one is — use the word “candy” in the name. Instant hit. — Jenny Rosenstrach, Dinner: The Playbook

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless center-cut pork chops
  • ⅓ Cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons canola oil
  • ¼ Cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ Cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, halved, or a shake or two of powdered garlic

Directions

Place the pork chops in a re-sealable plastic bag Add the maple syrup, canola oil, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and garlic. Marinate anywhere from 1 hour to overnight.

When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Remove the chops from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels, scraping off any garlic that clings to the meat. Place the chops on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake, flipping once halfway through, for 15 to 20 minutes, until firm in the center but not rock hard.
