    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • Kosher salt
    • 1/2 tsp. Finely chopped fresh mint
    • 1 tbsp. Finely chopped fresh cilantro
    • 1 1/2 tbsp. Unsalted butter
    • 1 tbsp. Garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 tbsp. Minced fresh ginger
    • 2 tbsp. Olive oil
    • 1 tbsp. Pure maple syrup
    • 2 tbsp. Dark rum
    • 3/4 cup Homemade or low-salt chicken broth or water
    • 1/4 cup All-purpose flour
    • 4 Boneless center-cut pork chops
03 Method
  • Step 1
    Rinse the pork chops and pat them dry. Put the flour on a plate. Combine the broth or water, rum, and maple syrup in a measuring cup or small bowl; set aside. Generously season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Dredge the chops in the flour and shake off the excess.
  • Step 2
    Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat for 1 min. Add the olive oil, and when it’s hot, set the chops in the pan. Cook until one side is lightly golden, about 2 min. Turn the pieces and cook until the other side is lightly golden and the meat is cooked through but still moist, another 1 to 2 min. Transfer the chops to a plate and repeat with the remaining chops, if necessary.
  • Step 3
    Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and stir constantly until they begin to turn golden, 5 to 10 seconds, and then immediately add the maple-rum mixture to the pan. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to scrape up the browned bits and help them dissolve. Boil until the sauce has reduced by about two-thirds and is nicely saucy, 3 to 4 min. Off the heat, add the butter, swirling the pan vigorously as it melts so it emulsifies the sauce.
  • Step 4
    Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon the sauce over the pork and then sprinkle on the cilantro and mint. Serve right away.
