(9 Votes)
45 Min

You'll love the sweet-and-sour taste sensation that the sugar and vinegar add to these oh-so-tender pork chops. Just one bite and you'll understand why they're called Melt in Your Mouth Pork Chops.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 (1-inch-thick) boneless center-cut loin pork chops
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup pitted prunes, sliced
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, sliced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Cook pork chops 5 minutes on each side, or until browned; drain.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to skillet. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 30 minutes, or until meat is tender, stirring occasionally.

Hi there! Are you having trouble viewing our recipes? Let us know and we can help you resolve the issue. Thank you!

Made this last night. We enjoyed very much. This recipe is a keeper.

I did not love these at all. The sauce is way to overpowering for the meat. I even doubled the water to tone it down but did not help. I would use half the amt of vinegar and brown sugar if I made these again. Which I won't.

This sounds delicious! I have always had trouble with pork chops though-not being tender enough. Is it the cider vinegar that tenderizes the meat? I think apricots and prunes go great with it, but if you say prunes to my family, they aren't going to eat it. Maybe I should say cooked plums instead! lol They won't be able to tell the difference after everything is cooked!

I have had the same problem with pork chops before but they were not tough last night. They were delicious.

pork is funny .. one minute its perfect the next its overcooked and dried someone mentioned cherries ..maybe you should try apricots and cherries

Really good! Didn't have dried apricots so used dried cherries instead, very easy to put together and cook. Made rice pilaf and green beans. This would be great for company.

i was thinking cherries too gotta try this thanx

It was delicious. We liked it so much we are having it again. This time my husband is making it. It was easy and mistake proof.

my wifes allergic to vinager..will the vinager cook off like alchol dose when you make the sauce or is there a substate??? thanks

Looking forward to trying them tonight.

For our dinner this evening I prepared the "Melt In Your Mouth Pork Chops." My husband was doubtful but after the first taste of these delectable pork chops he didn't ask for gravy a second time. Very easy to prepare.

Sounds good.. will rate once we've tried them. :)
