Maple Braised Pork Chops

I have been wanting to try this recipe for a LONG time now!!! And I must admit I was very disappointed, I ended up taking about 3 bites of pork chop and ate my sides. I am not sure what it was but just wasn't my thing. :-(

Maple Braised Pork Chops (From: Joelen)

  • 1-2 lbs pork ribs (I used pork chops)
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • splash of worchestershire sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock for the bottom of the crockpot

Combine above ingredients (except pork chops) in a bowl. Consistency will slightly clumpy and paste like. Coat pork ribs with this paste using your hands - a basting brush isn't as effective.

Place coated pork in a dutch oven or in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 300 degrees for 3-4 hours OR Place coated pork in your crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours.

I love the quote on your header. I'm a terrible cook - so I'm gong to remember that from now on. Thanks!

Gee, that's too bad. I make pork with maple and sage that I love. Maple, apples, and rosemary go well together too.

No I did them in the crock-pot for about 3 1/2 hours.
