Last week I was craving maple glazed pork chops. I had them awhile back at my sister's house, but she couldn't remember the recipe so I recreated the flavors I remembered.
I remember a Hickory Smoke Marinade in the recipe and happened to have some on hand. It's tasty and adds a real smokey flavor to meats. You can buy it at Walmart or most grocery stores.

Maple Glazed Pork Chops
4 pork chops
1/2 cup Hickory Smoke Marinade
3 Tbsp. butter
6-8 large mushrooms, sliced
salt and pepper
1/4 cup chicken broth
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
Place pork chops in a shallow dish and pour about 1/2 cup marinade
over them. Poke all over with a fork and let marinate 40 minutes.
Heat a skillet with 3 Tbsp. butter. Add pork chops and fry until done,
about 5-6 minutes. Size and thickness can make a difference.
Do not over cook! They will get tough. A little pink is okay in the middle.
You will be adding them back to the heat once the sauce is done.
When done remove from skillet.
Add mushrooms to pan drippings and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Saute until soft. Add chicken broth and maple syrup, cook on high
until sauce reduces and thickens. Add pork chops back to skillet
and heat for a minute or so.
