You did it! The turkey was delicious, the stuffing was a hit, and everyone loved the pumpkin pie. The next holiday is quickly approaching, but for now it’s time to take a break from holiday-themed food. After all, it’s still officially fall and we can’t think of a better way to enjoy the season than a nice bone-in pork dinner.

1) Cream of Mushroom Pork Chops Recipe

This easy recipe from Low Carb Maven is creamy and rich while still maintaining the low carb label. No condensed soup to be found here, only fresh ingredients make up the sauce that drenches the juicy pork chops. The best part of the recipe, other than the delicious mushroom gravy, is that you only use one pan to make it. Which is a welcome break from the inevitable stack of holiday dirty dishes.  

2) Balsamic Apricot Pork Chops

Kevin is Cooking‘s pork chop recipe promises to be a welcome addition to your dinner rotation. Popping with bold flavor, the kick in the sauce comes from apricot jam mixed with balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, thyme, and a pinch of red pepper. The glaze is poured over the pork chops after they are cooked through. Plate over mashed potatoes for a memorable meal that doesn’t include ham or turkey.

3) Apple Cider Pork Chops

One of the best parts of fall is the abundance of apple cider. Pork and apples are a match made in heaven, so this recipe from What Should I Make For… practically makes angels sing. First, the brine is made from the cider and sugar. After the brine cools, the pork is covered to soak for an hour in the fridge and then seared. Sliced apples and onions are cook in an apple cider sauce, which finishes the seared chops. Make sure to have a nice cold glass of cider on the side!

Enjoy your break, next post will be holiday-themed!
