Easy Peach Glaze

Making this easy peach glaze is a breeze, whether you’re using fresh peaches or canned ones. However, when making Grilled Peach Glazed Pork Chops for two, the smaller fruit cups are an excellent alternative to a large can of peaches.

All you have to do is blend the peaches with water using a food processor or high-speed blender. Then cook the peach puree with granulated sugar until it thickens.

Finally, stir in a little balsamic vinegar for a touch of tanginess. There you have it, an easy peach glaze that will take pork chops to the next level.

Alternative To Using Fresh or Canned Peaches

If you don’t have fresh or canned peaches on hand, don’t worry! Peach jam or peach preserves can be used as a substitute in this recipe.

However you will no longer need to puree the peach jam or preserves with water. Simply taste the jam or preserves and adjust the sugar content according to taste.

Then mix in the balsamic vinegar for that delightful balance of sweet and tangy flavors.

Bone-in vs. Boneless Pork Chops

Both bone-in and boneless pork chops can be used in this recipe, with each offering its own advantages. Bone-in chops typically have more flavor and tend to retain moisture better.

However boneless chops cook faster and are easier to handle. Whichever type you choose, just keep an eye on the grill and adjust the cook time as needed.

What You Need To Do Before You Grill

Before grilling, ensure your pork chops are at room temperature for even cooking. Then rub oil on the grill grates to prevent sticking.

Then preheat the grill to medium-high heat. And don’t forget to have an instant-read digital thermometer handy to check the internal temperature of the pork chops so that they don’t overcook and turn out dry.

Safe Temperature For Pork Chops

To ensure perfectly cooked, moist and tender pork chops, the internal temperature should reach 145°F. It’s best to check the temperature by inserting the thermometer through the side of the meat rather than the top for a more accurate reading.

Let The Pork Chops Rest

Allowing the pork chops to rest for about 5 minutes after grilling is crucial. This resting time lets the juices redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a juicier and more flavorful bite.

Cutting into the pork chops too soon may cause the juices to run out, leading to dry and chewy texture.

What To Serve With Peach Glazed Pork Chops

Peach glazed pork chops pair well with a variety of side dishes. Consider serving them with a fresh green salad, grilled vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes, or a simple rice pilaf.

These sides compliment the sweet and tangy flavors of the peach glaze while providing a well-rounded and satisfying meal.
