Cook the pork - using the 6+2+2 method

Place a frying pan over a medium to high heat and add a little olive oil. Place the pork chops in the frying pan and cook for 6 minutes on the first side. After the first 6 minutes turn your pork chops and cook for a further 2 minutes. After this time remove the chops from the pan and set them aside to rest for 2 minutes.

Prepare the glaze while the pork cooks

While the pork chops are cooking, finely dice the onion, and set aside with the apricot jam, soy sauce and garlic.

04
Saute the glaze

Once you have removed the meat from the pan, return it to the heat and add the onion. Quickly sauté until translucent, up to 2 minutes. Add to this the apricot jam, soy sauce and garlic and stir for 2 minutes until it begins to come together and thicken

Remove from the heat and place the pork chops into this pan and quickly turn to coat in the glaze
