Honey Mustard Pork Chops with Apricots (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 05/07/2013 - Pork chops are one of my reliable standbys, one of my go-to dishes when I need to make a delicious dinner in a pinch. Any way you care to make them, I'm usually happy to eat a pork chop.

Recently, I decided I needed a bit more splash in my recipe mix, so I looked around that put a new spin on an old favorite. The result made me smile.

It's spring, so apricots and peaches will soon be appearing at a stores near you. Yes, this recipe can be made with peaches, just use less peach than you would apricot, but otherwise, prepare the same way.

This recipe serves four, so scale accordingly.

  • 4 boneless pork chops (1-1½ inches thick)
  • 4 fresh apricots or 1 peach, pitted and cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoons gluten-free brown mustard (I use Amy's)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:
Rinse and dry pork chops, and then season them on both sides with salt and black pepper.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and sear the chops about 5 minutes per side, until well browned.

Remove chops to a plate for a moment.

Keeping the juices in the pan, add apricots and allow them to sear briefly, then whisk in garlic, honey, mustard, and water.

Add chops back to the pan. Make sure they're flat on the bottom, so they cook evenly.

Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook covered, until the pork is cooked through; about 7-8 more minutes. Turn once at 3½-4 minutes, and stir as needed.

Sprinkle with parsley, and serve chops topped with the cooked apricots and pan juices. I like to serve them with rice and vegetables for a delicious dinner.

The pork chops pair nicely with a dry white wine or a gluten-free hard apple cider.

glutenfreegirlfriend, I hope you are still following this thread. The vomiting bile and unintended weight loss can be a sign of bile reflux. Here is a NYtimes article on it. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html here is thread about it. Getting completely over bile reflux can be difficult. I hope he finds something that works for him. ***this is not medical advice. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy,

Nope. I got the flu and a cold within a two month span at the end of winter. However, I was battle a tooth infection during that same time period.

Hey Palmtrees450, You are not alone. I am going through the exact same thing right now. I thought it was gone but unfortunately I ate something else that has triggered it again. After reading another article on here I am starting to think it is rice...yet one more thing to eliminate from my diet, have already given up dairy and corn, now rice. I have super high anxiety. Doesn't matter who it is or what is said I am over emotional and really struggle in day to day functions even down to just folding a basket of laundry. I do have Xanax but that doesn't even help anymore. I have actually stopped taking it because of that. Only thing that helps is time, rest and drink plenty of water. The rest helps me more because then I get to be still and not think about anything. Hard to function when you have what feels like 15 people in your head at one time talking to you but it is only your thoughts rushing through your mind. I truly hope you feel better soon. Just be cautious out there. Even down to making sure your kitchen is clean and that all of your utensils, plates, pans, etc. are washed extremely well as sometimes I feel like this is where some of my problem comes in at but I haven't figured all of that out yet.

He may need to make a diet change for his diverticulitis. But you can't diagnose Celiac that way. If it were me, I would try another doctor. Is one doesn't sound very good. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

This sucks, I want to add to what Knitty Kittty said. We are the Niacin warriors on this board. Here is a long but informative thread that talks about where others' have discussed this topic exhaustively. I also recommend this thread where Knitty Kitty talks about how Niacin helped her itching associated with a DH rash. I hope this is helpful. posterboy,
