Sweet and Spicy Smothered Pork Cutlets

Since the weather has been so cold here. I have been craving some barbecue. Lord knows I was not about to go outside and freeze while grilling. Sorry I just won't do it. So I supplemented with some awesome sauce smothered a top some pork cutlets. I don't know what it its but bbq sauce and pork go really well together. Served along side my bourbon scalloped sweet potatoes oh man.....its good!

FOR THE PORK:
1 package of Pork cutlets, 8 count
salt and pepper


FOR THE SAUCE:
1 cup Onion, Chopped Small
2 cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 cup Ketchup
½ cups Maple Syrup
¼ teaspoons Brown Mustard
¼ cups Lite Brown Sugar
1 jar 10 0z Apricot Preserves
¼ teaspoons Pepper
¼ teaspoons Salt

1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper


Time to make that sauce. In a sauce pan saute the onion and garlic with some olive oil. When onion is just about carmalized add ketchup, maple syrup, brown mustard, lite brown sugar, apricot preserves, salt and pepper and cayenne pepper. Stir all together then bring to a boil, lower heat and let reduce down about 20 minutes.


While the sauce is simmering away, Season cutlets with salt and pepper. Heat a large oven proof skillet over medium high heat. Sear cutlets 2 minutes on each side. Pour sauce over the top and broil on high 2-3 minutes until nice and sticky.
