Ingredients

4 thick pork chops (3/4″ to 1″ thick)
1 tsp each cumin seed, coriander, and ginger
1 TBSP olive oil
2 large shallots minced
3/4 c. dried apricots, slivered
3/4 c. dry white wine (can substitute apple cider or vegetable stock)

Directions

Simmer the apricot slivers in the wine for 5 minutes. Then turn off the heat and leave them to soak in the hot wine while you work on the pork chops.

Mix the dry spices and rub onto both sides of the pork chops.

Pan fry the pork chops slowly with the olive oil, at least 7 minutes on each side.

During that last three minutes, add the shallots to the pan.

Once the chops are done, remove them from the pan and keep warm. Add the wine/apricot mixture to the pan and deglaze. Pour mixture over chops and serve.

This is delicious and easy!
