    Default Need a quick sauce for pork chops

    I'm going to pan sear some chops for dinner, and I'm in the mood for
    some kind of sauce/reduction to go with it.

    Any suggestions?

    Mitch, throw some soy sauce, worstershire sauce, and a sweet thai chile
    sauce such as mae ploy. Works well!

    I make a nice sauce with dijon mustard. Just deglaze the pan with white
    wine, cook it down a bit, mount some butter then add a generous amount of
    dijon mustard.

    This is *good* ... depending what you have on hand, you could
    make something like this:

    From America's Test Kitchen, Lemon and Thyme Sauce

    1 TB vegetable oil
    1 shallot, minced
    1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme, rosemary or sage
    1 TB fresh lemon juice
    3 TB unsalted butter, cut into 3 pieces and chilled

    Add the oil to the pan, return to medium hight heat until
    shimmering. Add the shallot and cook until softened.
    Stir in the broth and the thyme, scraping up any browned
    bits, and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Turn
    the heat to low and add the butter, one piece at at time.
    Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon over pork
    chops.

    Deglaze with white wine, and add several spoons of Dijon mustard & thicken
    with a cornstarch slurry. If you was the sauce glossy when you remove from
    the heat swirl in several tablespoons of butter.

    As an option you can add some dried cranberries if you like.

    Deglaze the pan with a bit of stock (or wine), spice to taste and
    thicken with corn starch.

    I'd use applesauce for pork in the above concoction, and skip the
    mustard.

    But that's just me.

    What's wrong with a little store bought-apple sauce? You can buy it
    without added sweetener if you like.

    That sounds delicious. I've had trouble in the past choosing a white wine
    for cooking, because I don't drink wine...any recommendations?

    One of my favorite pan sauces for chicken or pork involves sateeing shallots
    (sometimes garlic too) in the pan after I remove the meat, deglazing the pan
    with chicken stock and bourbon (about 3/4 cup of stock and 1/4 cup good
    bourbon), and adding about 1/2 cup of heavy cream, then letting that reduce
    as the meat rests. At the end I add fresh cracked pepper to it (I have white
    and black in my mill).

    Almost amy semi dry or dry wine works. I use a chardonnay usually. The
    pork goes with sweet so the sauce wine does not have to be especially dry.
    A sauvignon blank would work. I suppose a white dry vermouth might work and
    the advantage is it would keep in the fridge over a long time.

    There is a pork chops with sour-cream dill sauce on Epicurious that is
    good.

    sesame oil, and white pepper.

    I've done that and you are right. Wonderful stuff!

    I usually use chardonnay as well. I tried it with a dry Riesling last week
    and was not very happy with the results. It didn't seem to meld with the
    Dijon that well.

    Another thing that has worked out well is to sauté chops sprinkled with 5
    spice powder, then deglaze the pan with dry sherry and soy sauce.

    I'll have to give the vermouth a try. That sounds very interesting.

    If you want a *really* quick "apple sauce" just keep one of those
    small jars of baby food pure apple goo handy so you can warm it when
    needed and splash it on the chops! (Of course you're at liberty to
    complicate that as much as you wish to if you have the time. :-)


    Cheers, Phred.

    I use small amounts of apple sauce in some recipes as sweetener or for
    the pectin, like to hold ground meat together in stuffed cabbage so I
    don't have to use rice or starch-based fillers. I buy the individual
    servings in the little plastic cups. They last a long time in the pantry
    and they usually are the perfect amount for my needs.

    My quick "sauce" is gravy made from the fond. Splash in some dry
    sherry to loosen, add sour cream (fat free works just fine) stir.
    Voilà.

    I love cooking with wine.

    Apple Butter works much better... add some to caramelized sweet onions and
    thin with sauterne.
