Mamas Monday Meals: Sticky Apple and Balsamic Pork Chops! So YUMMY! #HeinzVinegar

August 2013


“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Heinz Vinegar. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.”

By now we probably all know all the amazing household uses for vinegar:

:: A solution of vinegar and baking soda will easily remove cooking oil from your stovetop.
:: Clean the filter on your humidifier by removing it and soaking it in a pan of white vinegar until all the sediment is off.
:: Vinegar naturally breaks down uric acid and soapy residue, leaving baby clothes and diapers soft and fresh. Add a cup of vinegar to each load during the rinse cycle.
:: Soak paint stains in hot vinegar to remove them.
:: To clean drip coffeemakers, fill the reservoir with white vinegar and run it through a brewing cycle. Rinse thoroughly by brewing two cycles with water before using.
:: To remove bumper stickers from car chrome, paint on vinegar and let it soak in. Next, scrape off the stickers. Decals can be removed similarly.
:: Rid your refrigerator and freezer of bad odors by cleaning the insides with a solution of equal parts vinegar and water, then wiping dry.

It's pretty amazing stuff!! And has millions of amazing purposes, but what about for cooking? Even better what about apple cider vinegar?

To be completely honest I have used Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar for a few household cleaning projects, but never in a recipe.

My mind immediately turned to pork! I thought the flavor combinations would work really well together. And I was right! Smile

Heinz has filtered Apple Cider Vinegar and unfiltered.

I decided to use the unfiltered for the pork (to add a little more to it) and filtered Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar for my dressing.

Pork Glaze Ingredients:

1 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce 
1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 package of pork chops


In a medium frying pan on medium heat start cooking your pork chops.

Slowly add all of your ingredients and cook until the pork chops are cooked all the way.

Super easy right?!

Dressing Ingredients:

1 cup oil
1/2 cup Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
Drippings from your pan (from above)

I used  spinach, apples, red onion, feta cheese and carrots for my salad.

Your whole family will love these pork chops!! They are so sticky and good! If you didn't already, now you have a great recipe for Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar!
