Marinated Pork Chops with Apple Compote

"I found this on I made a few changes including using ground instead of fresh ginger, sauteing chops instead of grilling, and reducing the butter by half. This was delicious!"


4 boneless pork chops
1 cup balsamic vinegar
2 cloves minced garlic
1 t. chopped fresh thyme
1/2 cup olive oil

4 T. butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 apple, thinly sliced
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. ground nutmeg


1. Mix balsamic vinegar, garlic, and thyme and oil in a small bowl. Pour the marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Add the pork chops, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
2. Saute pork with remaining marinade from bag in a large frying pan until browned and cooked through (about 15-20 min)
3. While the pork is cooking, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar until it begins to simmer. Add the apples, cherries, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook and stir until the apple is tender, about 10 minutes. Serve the sliced pork topped with the apple compote.
