Servings 4 people
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 4 (1-inch thick) pork loin chops
- ¼ cup apple juice or cider

- 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
Preheat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Combine chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Season both sides of pork chops generously with spice mixture.
Add chops to the pan and cook 2 minutes per side until outside is brown. Combine juice or cider, maple syrup, and vinegar. Reduce heat to medium.
