A quick skillet recipe from the Maple Syrup Cookbook by Ken Haedrich. This dish with Asian flavors can also be made with pork tenderloins or boneless chicken breasts. Great served with rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, flatten the pork chops between sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.
  2. Combine the flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish.
  3. Melt 1 Tbsp of butter in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Dredge the pork in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess.
  5. Add half of the pork to the skillet and saute until brown and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
  6. Transfer to a platter and keep warm by covering loosely with foil.
  7. Repeat with remaining pork and butter.
  8. Reduce heat to medium.
  9. Add the shallot, ginger root, and garlic to the pan and saute for 2 minutes.
  10. Stir in the wine, maple syrup, teriyaki sauce, and vinegar.
  11. Cook, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly.
  12. Return the pork to the pan and heat through.

I made this as a take-home meal for my DS, I used seasoning salt, increased the garlic and reduced the ginger and used minced yellow onion in place of shallots (I ran out of shallots!). Very good Whisper, thank you for an easy recipe that is big on taste!...Kitten:)
