Another Taste of Home recipe that we like.

Ginger Maple Pork Chops

½ onion, chopped
4 tsp canola oil, divided
2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
4 bone-in pork loin chops (6 oz. each)
½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
¼ cup maple syrup

In a small skillet over medium-low heat, cook onion in 2 tsp oil until golden brown and very tender, about 10 minutes. Add ginger; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
Meanwhile, combine the chili powder, salt, and cinnamon; rub over both sides of pork chops. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown chops in remaining oil for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Add the broth, syrup and onion mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until meat is tender. Uncover and cook a few more minutes until liquid is thickened and reduced to ½ cup. Serve chops with sauce.

Yield: 4 servings.

These pork chops are very tasty. The only thing I changed was to increase the spice rub. I only make 3 chops and it was barely enough to cover them. But other than that, it's pretty good as it is. These are a nice twist on the usual pork chop dinner.
