Crown Maple Blackberry Pork Chops (Recipe)

Use maple syrup in a spicy rub for pork

This delicious recipe makes four servings.

  • 1 cup Crown Maple Sugar
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 Tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 6 fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1⁄2 cup white wine
  • 1⁄2 cup water
  • 4 ¾-inch pork chops, bone-in (you can also try this recipe with chicken)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp all-purpose flour
  1. Combine Crown Maple Sugar with spices, herbs and garlic. Set aside ¼ of the spice mix
  2. Rub ¾ of the spice mixture generously into each pork chop. (Hint: Let rubbed pork rest for an hour or more to allow the flavor to seep into it)
  3. Over medium-high heat, sear the pork chops in vegetable oil in a sauteÌ pan until golden brown on each side. Turn off heat, so as not to burn the searing juices, and remove chops from the sauteÌ pan
  4. Place blackberries, remaining spice mix, water, and white wine into the searing pan and cook over medium heat. Crush the blackberries as they heat with a wooden spoon
  5. Whisk in flour. Add the pork chops back into the pan, cover, and cook for four-five minutes or until pork is fully cooked
  6. Serve pork chops immediately, drizzled with blackberry pan drippings
