8 smallish port loin chops, about 1 inch thick, trimmed of all visible fat
1 T paprika
1 T garlic powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. ground black pepper
about 1/2 C 100% apricot preserve (all fruit, no sugar)
2 T brandy
1 T dry mustard
Juice of 1 lemon.
Mix spice ingredients together, and generously rub on both sides of pork chops. Grill pork chops over medium high heat, until well browned, about 3-4 minutes on each side. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Move chops to a baking dish. Heat glaze ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat, and set aside. Brush glaze ingredients, liberally, on both sides of pork chops and bake just until internal temperature reaches 175 degrees (about 8-10 more minutes).
We served this with a side salad and some sauteed spinach. Hope you enjoy this sweet treat! :-)
