I wanted to come up with fall recipe to Celebrate the festive season. Something that says hello everyone fall has arrived! So, I made these absolutely delicious Pork Chops with Maple Syrup and Apples. I hope you give it a try!

Pork Chops with Maple Syrup and Apples

I love the way the apples, onion and maple syrup coat the pork chops.

It just melts in your mouth and to be honest. It is better than any type of pork chop dinner that I’ve had in a long while. 

This post has been sponsored by Maple Lifestyle, a Canadian Maple Syrup brand that is based Crystal Beach, Ontario. An area known to produce some of the finest maple syrups in the World.

Now, I have tried a lot of maple syrups in my day and after trying this brand.

I can honestly say they stand above the rest.

They have an array of other maple syrup products, however they sell 3 unique Maple Syrups

One being a Dark Syrup, Amber Syrup, and Bourbon Syrup.

You can find them all for sale here: Maple Lifestyle Syrups!

It is fun to try them all and see the subtle differences. In my household, we all agreed that the bourbon was super special.

As it has a much deeper, rich taste that comes from the being aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. Which has notes of caramel, toffee, vanilla and charred oak.  

However, when it comes to cooking certain dishes like these Pork Chops with Apples and onions, I would recommend using their Amber or Dark syrup.

And for this recipe, I went with their Amber Syrup and it was divine!

CAN YOU USE ANY KIND OF PORK CHOP

Absolutely! Any kind of porkchop will work for this recipe. Such as bone in pork chops, pork loin or ribs. 

I used bone in pork chops, that were about 1 1/2 inches thick. I prefer thinner chops for this recipe.

However thicker will work well too, just make sure you are cooking them a bit longer.

The trick to cooking the best pan fried pork chops is to use a good cast iron pan, because you are going to want to sear them. 

The second trick is to season the pork chops generously prior to cooking. 

If you follow those two tips alone you are sure to prepare the best pork chops ever. 

These chops can be done on the grill as well. I’ll leave them up to you!
