Enjoy this easy pork chop recipe when you are camping, or at home. It uses simple ingredients, is quick to make, and tastes delicious!
We like to eat these pork chops with nugget potatoes and mixed vegetables.
This is an ideal supper for your first night at camp. You want something quick and easy so you can spend most of your time and energy setting up the campsite - but you also need something substantial to fuel all of that work!
We ate this often on our cross-country camping trip. All of the ingredients for the recipe except for the meat were in our food box or cooler.
We'd stop at a supermarket and pick up some quick-fry pork chops, and then find a campground. I'd set up the stove and start cooking while the rest of the family set up camp. In no time at all, the tent was up, the beds were made and we were eating a delicious supper!
In a large heavy frying pan, heat 1 Tbsp/15 mL butter and 1 Tbsp/15 mL oil over medium-high heat.
Add 4 boneless pork chops. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Cook the chops until cooked (3 to 10 minutes), turning once.
While they cook, mince a small onion. (You'll need about 1/4 cup/60 mL.)
Remove the chops and set them aside on a plate.
Add the minced onion to the pan. Sauté briefly.
Stir in 3/4 cup/175 mL apple juice. Turn up the heat and boil for about 3 minutes, stirring.
Add 1 Tbsp/15 mL maple syrup and 1 Tbsp/15 mL balsamic vinegar.
Turn down the heat and simmer for about 2 minutes.
Return the chops to the pan for another minute, or until heated through.
