Maple Glazed Sirloin Chops

This recipe comes from one of my newest cookbooks, Meals in Minutes: More than 150 Delicious Recipes for Busy Families.  It was published in 2011 by Meredith Print Advantage and was edited by Lisa Kingsley.  I purchased it at the Scholastic Book Fair that our Catholic school held a while back.  It’s not for sale at the Scholastic Book site; you can, however, purchase it through Amazon from one of their sellers.

Anyway, the original recipe was called “Maple-Glazed Pork Medallions” and I didn’t have any pork tenderloin on hand, so I used pork sirloin chops.  And I added one extra apple just because we like apples.  If you can find a copy of the book, it’s a really nice book with some great recipes; this recipe is on page 106.


1 1/2 cups of water

3/4 cup uncooked long grain white rice (NOT quick cooking rice!)

dash of salt

1 pound (more or less) of pork sirloin chops

2 tsp. canola oil

2 large red cooking apples, cored and cut into large (1/2 inch) wedges

1/3 cup REAL maple syrup – NO imitation please!

2 tbsp. water
