Skillet Pork Chops with Maple Bourbon Sauce recipe 


Season the pork chops with salt and coat with the flour. In a large skillet, coated with Teflon™ non-stick, heat the oil and brown the chops 2 minutes on each side; remove and set aside, discarding the oil.

Add the broth, bourbon, and the maple syrup and bring to a boil, stirring with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan. Reduce the heat and return the chops to the skillet. Simmer until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Transfer the chops to a serving plate and bring the mixture to a boil so that it will thicken. Slowly add the cream, stirring frequently to a thick consistency. Season again with salt and sprinkle with the thyme.
