Last week I shared an awesome-sauce deal on pork from Costco with you, where until August 9th you can get $2.50 off boneless pork chops or roast! I also told you that I had found an amazing recipe that would get your kids to eat pork, and that we would be giving away a $25 Costco gift card to one lucky DM reader…well, the time has come!
But, first…the kid-friendly pork recipe that is easy enough for any night of the week.
Boneless Pork Chops with Apple-Balsamic Glaze Recipe
– 4 Boneless Pork Chops
– 1/3 cup chicken broth
– 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
– 1/4 cup of apple jelly
– 1 tbsp. butter
– 3.4 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
– 3.4 tsp. garlic powder
– 1/4 tsp. pepper
– 1/2 tsp. onion powder
– 1 tbsp. olive oil
– 1 1/4 cup apples, peeled and finely diced
– 4 cups of fresh greens or spinach
Stir together apple jelly, vinegar and broth. In the meantime, saute apples in butter over medium heat for 6 minutes. Add jelly mixture to apples and reduce by half.
In a medium bowl, combine onion powder, seasoning salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Rub on pork chops. In a large skillet, heat oil on medium heat and cook chops approx. 7 minutes, turning only once. Place pork on a bed of fresh greens or spinach and top with apple-balsamic glaze.

New Temperature Guidelines
As a reminder, the USDA recently reduced the temperature guideline for pork loins, chops and roasts from 160 to 145 degrees F, with a three minute rest. This will yield a juicy, flavorful product that may be pinker in color than most home cooks are used to. Ground pork, like all ground meat, should be cooked to 160 degrees. Visit www.porkbeinspired.com for information on different cuts of pork and the new temperature guidelines.
Now how about some cold hard Costco cash?
