You probably already have all this stuff in your pantry and refrigerator, right?
I like to measure by pouring the ingredients into the measuring cup and then adding the next and so on.
Makes clean up much easier.
If you switch out the shallot for an onion, make sure you mince it very fine, since there is such a short cook time.
If you want a sweeter and thicker sauce, add another tablespoon or more of brown sugar.
What is the difference between a shallot and an onion?
They are both members of the allium family.
Shallots are sweeter, richer and more potent than onions.
Similar to garlic, shallots grow in clusters and their bulbs are attached at the base.
Imagine if a red onion and a garlic got together. Kind of.
While they are more potent than onions, shallots lack that bite, so they work especially well in dishes where they are only slightly cooked or can easily be eaten raw.
They work great in salads!
What Size Pork Chops are Best for Instant Pot and Pressure Cookers?
Pork chops cook so fast and you don’t want them to over cook.
1/2 inches to 3/4 inches are the best for recipes with an under 5 minute cook time.
If searing the pork chops first, your timing will vary, depending on the recipe.
Why use bone in pork chops?
Pork chops are naturally quite lean.
The meat closest to the bone generally has the most flavor.
The bone itself, will add nice flavor to the dish.
The Orange Glaze Sauce will reduce down and thicken, while the chops are resting.
For a creamy version, try adding a little heavy cream.
What are Side Dishes for Orange Glazed Pork Chops?
