Pork chops with peach-thyme glaze

Sweet, juicy peaches and fragrant thyme pair beautifully with salty pork chops. Serve with mashed potato and cabbage or cauliflower couscous.

Serves: 2-4

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes


1 tbsp olive oil
2 bone-in pork chops, 150g each
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 large shallot, finely diced
2 peaches, diced
2 tsp thyme, roughly chopped
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp butter


Heat the frying pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to coat the pan.

Season pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook the pork chops approximately 3 minutes on each side, or until done. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

Add shallots, peaches and thyme to the fry pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or just until the peaches begin to soften. Add the white wine and deglaze the pan by bringing it to a boil and scraping any brown bits off the bottom. Reduce liquid by half.

Add chicken stock and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and reduce about 2 minutes, or until the glaze begins to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in the butter.

Return the pork chops to the pan and coat with the glaze. Serve.
