  • Serves: 4 servings
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 large Oliver’s Natural Sustainable Bone-In Center-Cut Pork Loin Chops, brought up to room temp.
  • 2 tbsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp. Ground Ginger
  • 1 tbsp. Hot Paprika
  • 3 ripe Yellow Nectarines, peeled/ pitted & roughly minced
  • 2 tsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Chili Sambal
  • 1 tsp. Fresh Ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
  • Salt & Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. Combine garlic powder, ground ginger, and paprika with 2 teaspoons each salt and ground black pepper. Pat pork chops lightly with a paper towel to dry, then season liberally on both sides with rub. Heat a large skillet on high until hot, then add vegetable oil and continue heating. When oil is hot but not yet smoking, add pork chops to pan and sear until well-browned on both sides. Reduce heat to low, and cover tightly; cook about 6 to 10 minutes or until a thermometer reads just below 145 degrees F.

  2. Combine minced nectarines, ginger, chili sambal, rice wine vinegar, and brown sugar in a non-reactive mixing bowl; season to taste with salt and black pepper. Raise heat on pork chops to medium-high, and add glaze mixture to pan. Bring mixture to a hard boil and melt in butter, then reduce heat to low; cook until chops are coated in glaze on both sides, turning occasionally.

  3. Allow pork chops to rest for at least 5 minutes before serving. Serve topped with additional glaze, if desired.
