Easy Apple Cider Pork Chops

This was a delicious and quick weeknight dinner! Chris said we are definitely adding these pork chops to the regular rotation. I typically don't like pork; however, I enjoyed it tonight. I didn't have any onion on hand; however, next time I will serve these with carmalized onions and maybe some apple slices. Yum!

Easy Apple Cider Pork Chops

1 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoon butter
1 clove minced garlic
3 pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
Salt and pepper
Flour, enough to coat pork chops
1 cup Apple Cider
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Mix cornstarch and water and set aside.
Melt butter in skillet with garlic. Meanwhile, add salt and pepper to chops and coat in flour. Add chops to skillet and cook until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side.
Mix together cider, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Add to skillet and heat to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat 10 minutes or until done.
Move chops to one side of pan (or remove from pan completely). Add cornstarch mixture to opposite side. Cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens. Serve sauce over chops.
