Ingredients
Directions

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

In a large oven-safe saute pan over high heat, heat the olive oil until oil ripples. Season pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. Sear the chops, presentation side down, until browned. Then flip and cook until the other side is browned. If the chops are more than 2 inches thick, sear them on the sides as well, using tongs to hold them.

Once a uniform sear is achieved, remove the pan from the heat and pour the syrup over the chops. Cook in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. A meat thermometer should register 150 degrees F.

When fully cooked, remove the pan from oven and place it over a burner on high heat for a minute to thicken the glaze. Flip the chops so they are evenly coated and serve immediately.

    It was just okay, it was good but kinda bland and my chops were a little dry. Sometimes it the recipe and sometimes its the cook. who knows??
    This is a rich dish and probably something you wouldn't want to eat all the time but it is worth the calories once in a while and it's a nice change of pace from the standard breaded or fried chops.
    easy to make. lots of flavor!
    A great meal that is easy to prepare. I have made it twice already and plan to make it many more times. Great flavor!
     

     
    If I were to make a suggestion, maybe cut back the maple syrup to about 2/3 of a cup and take the chops out no later than 20 minutes. With less syrup, the glaze isn't as sticky when you serve it and if you leave the chops in the oven too long, it'll toughen the meat.
    Fast & simple, and good results! Served w/ some Asian-style veggies in a ginger & soy sauce.
     

     
    Changes:
     
    About 1/2 cup of syrup per pound of meat seems right.
     
    In our convection oven, 20 minutes at 475 left us with somewhat dry chops at a higher internal temperature than the recipe called for. We'll back the temp down or go shorter duration next time.
     

     
    Next time we're going to try boneless pork medallions.
    I LOVED this dish. My husband thought that it was a bit sweet for his taste. My kids enjoyed it, too. However, it reminded them of breakfast due to the maple syrup.
    Great, Easy, and the kids loved them!
    JUST THE RIGHT HINT OF BOTH SWEET AND HOT. THE GLAZE ON CHOPS MAKES A GREAT PRESENTATION. YUM YUM
    Its hard to find good veriations on Pork, this is one of them
    These pork chops are simple to make. The results are moist and tender
    It was a big hit at our house... you can cut back on the oil and syrup a little though and I didn't need to cook the chops that long. I did 450 for 18 minutes and they were very tender.
    It wasn't a hit with my family.
    Not great, but good. Tasted more like ham than pork chops, but I liked it well enough to make again.
