How do I make these Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops?

First you will marinate the pork chops by combining the marinade ingredients into a large bowl or large zip-lock plastic bag. Add pork chops, cover bowl or seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours.

The apple cider marinade infuses flavor and tenderizes the pork chops! BE SURE TO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!

Simmer for another 5 -8 minutes or until sauce slightly thickens.
