Maple-Glazed Applewood Smoked Pork Chops

Smoked Pork Chops

Our hand-trimmed, bone-in applewood smoked pork chops glazed with warm Wisconsin maple syrup make a memorable entree.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 6 people


  • 3 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
  • 6 Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bone-In Pork Chops
  • 1 Medium Sweet Onion, finely diced
  • 3 Honeycrisp Apples or any firm, crisp, sweet/tart apple, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 Tbsp. Wisconsin Maple Syrup (we prefer Grade B Dark Amber for this recipe, “Grade A” is lighter and has less flavor…and if you can get your hands on some “open pan” syrup, even better!)
  • 1 Tbsp. Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Pepper, to taste



Heat half of the butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high and place the chops in the pan.  Brown the chops, 2 or 3 at a time, and set the chops aside as they are finished.

Turn the heat in the pan down to medium and add the other half of the oil or butter.  Sauté the onions until soft, scraping any fond from the bottom of the pan into the mixture.  Add the apple slices and cook for about 4 minutes or until they are just beginning to become tender, then add the maple syrup and vinegar and cook down for about 2 more minutes.

Season with pepper and serve the apples and sauce over the warm, browned chops.

Go to recipe


This recipe is so good and so easy to make. It's my go to recipe when I want to impress. The combination of flavors are perfect. Sounds crazy but I usually serve it with Stovetop pork stuffing. I live the saltiness of the stuffing with the sweetest of the apples and onions.

Absolutely one of my favorite recipes. Apples and onions go together SO well. I pair with fried sweet potatoes, in duck fat, of course.
