Grilled Pork Cutlets With Maple Chipotle Glaze

"This is a quick and easy glaze with a spicy, smoky flavor that we make often for our pork chops. From the Black Dog Tavern's Summer on the Vineyard recipe book."

Ready In:




  • Preheat your grill. In a small saucepan, bring the first four glaze ingredients to a boil.
  • In a small jar, mix together the cornstarch and water. Put the lid on and shake vigorously (it should have the consistency of whole milk).
  • Pour the cornstarch slurry into the boiling glaze mixture and reduce to a simmer. Cook about 2 minutes until it becomes clear and thickens.
  • Season the cutlets with salt and pepper and brush with a little oil.
  • Grill cutlets 3 to 5 minutes per side, brushing glaze on while cooking.

    Delicious! I cooked them in my cast iron grill pan...worked great...loved the sweet and heat combination...this was really easy to prepare...just keep an eye on your boiling liquid...mine almost boiled over...I'm planning to use the sauce on other meats too! This is a keeper...thanks for posting it! =)

    This was fabulous! We have eaten at the Black Dog and I also have the cookbook. I hadn't made this recipe, yet. I'm so glad I finally did. The glaze has a delicious combination of flavors that complement eachother very well. I really love the chipotle powder (which I had bought a while ago for a Bobby Flay recipe and hadn't used it since). It adds some heat but is not overwhelming. Thank you! Made for the ZWT7 for the Golden Gourmets.

    This is Oh, so good! Made for ZWT #7 and the Witchin Kitchen team. It is easy to make, there were no pork cutlets at the store but my butcher sliced two beautiful boneless pork chops in half and thus my cutlet problem was solved. The glaze is so tasy...I didn't find chipotle powder so used chili powder. Awesome!

    Superb!! I used a pinch of dried thyme as I didn't have fresh. These were gobbled up by my bunch! Thanks for sharing!

    We loved this! Spicy sweet is our favorite flavor combo! There was extra sauce so we saved it for dh to put on whatever later on. Made for ZWT4. :) Go Belles!!


I work full-time as a School Psychologist in Michigan. Besides the kids, one of the best aspects of the job is summer vacation, when I can concentrate on doing more of the things that I like to do---like look up recipes and play games on Recipezaar!!! I married my wonderful and handsome husband, Sean, in August 2007. He is becoming a wonderful gardender and tends to both our veggie and herb gardens. We really enjoy cooking with our own fresh ingredients. We most often cook together, so my reviews typically reflect our joint opinions. He's the better cook, so I pick up a lot of my techniques from him. My other interests include reading (now that I have time), Irish dancing (I've taken a class for the last several years), "appreciating" wine (I use the term very loosely), and listening to and going to see Irish bands (I love the Pogues). I also enjoy travelling, especially around Western Europe, where I have been multiple times. One of my favorite places is Italy, and Sean and I had a great time on our honeymoon eating, drinking, and sightseeing in the Cinque Terre and in Tuscany. This July 2009, we expanded our horizons to Eastern Europe and visited the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia. Two of my favorite dishes on the trip were Croatian: fish brodet and Hvarska gregada. I am looking forward to trying my hand at making them at home as I see that someone on Zaar, who is Croatian, posted recipes for both! Besides my husband, the other lights of my life are my cats: Chloe, Pip, and my newest ragdoll cat, Giselle, all of whom I absolutely adore. <a href="¤t=PipChloe_web.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Pip and Chloe"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Giselle"></a> I've participated in the following events: <img src="" border="0" alt= "Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> I most recently had the privelege of being on the ZWT5 Team, the Sultans of Spice, with a great group of people.
