Boneless Pork Chops with Apple-Balsamic Glaze Recipe + #Win a $25 Costco Gift Card!


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 for information on different cuts of pork and the new temperature guidelines.

Now how about some cold hard Costco cash?

    We eat pork about 2 times a week. Favorites in my house include slow cooker barbecue pork, Carolina pulled pork and carnitas. Growing up, we only rarely ate pork and only in chop form. I had no idea what I was missing! Now that I’m the mom, I cook it all the time.

  2. Holly says

    I love my pork slow cooked and I have many recipes. Pulled pork, adobo, roast, kahlua pork, carnitas and more. So amazing and delicious!

  3. says

    We eat pork one day a week. I prepare it with a marinate and then put it on the stove top to brown then put it in the convection oven. This keeps it so moist.

  4. Leslie K says

    My family eats pork, the other white meat once a week. We will marinade a pork lion in rosemary, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and a splash of beer in a ziplock bag for a hour. Then pan sear the outsides and place in the oven on a roasting pan for an hour to an hour and a half. Then let it sit for 10 mins.

  5. katfam says

    We probably have it about once every week to 10 days. I prepare it in various ways. Tonight we had roasted pork loin with apple-cranberry chutney. Yum!

  6. Janice Cooper says

    We eat pork very often. We are not red-meat eaters. We love to have pork on the grill. My favorite is pork ribs and pork chops.

    We eat pork and buy the pork loin from Costco and cube it up with other ingredients in a crock pot to make a wonderful Chili Verde that is ready when you get home from work.

  8. Stephanie V. says

    My family does eat pork — usually pulled in burritos. I, however, don’t eat red meat so do not prepare. They want, they find.
