  • 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 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 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.
