What to Make When…Pork Chops

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 5, 2011

Welcome to my new series called “What to Make When…” I hope this series will help you decide what to make when you find the particular ingredient on the front page of your grocery store’s circular!

First up…pork chops!

If you have a fabulous pork chop recipe, please share it with us by linking it up below, or leaving it in the comments!

How funny! I sat down and read this with a tummy a little too full of a delicious pork chop recipe I found on allrecipes.com, Apricot-Glazed Pork Chops


I used apricot-pineapple preserves since that’s what I had on hand and apple juice since we don’t use wine. After coating the pork chops in it, I put them aside and cooked some veggies in the sauce (bell pepper, summer squash, tomatoes, snap peas). I served it with rice. Delicious!

What a great resource! I linked up my two favorite pork chop recipes and look forward to trying some of the other submissions.

So are pork chops on sale this week specifically or generally pork chops are a sale item in January? I like the idea of a round up, if that’s the point, but I was thinking the intent of the new series was to give some more specific info. Help!

Hey Allie,

Just a round up…pork chops are on sale in different places all over the country…it’s impossible for me to highlight something that’s on sale everywhere each week! I’m going to create a master list after a few weeks and keep adding to the master list.

I usually buy a whole boneless pork loin (sometimes as big as 8-9 lbs), then slice it into two freezer bags of pork “chops” and keep two large chunks for crockpot meals like Pulled Pork sandwiches. The lowest in my area is $1.69/lb, and I can get 4-5 meals worth out of one of those big ones.
