Slow roasting is the easiest way to make tender, superjuicy glazed pork chops. It also leaves time for you to make a side dish to complete the meal. We started by stirring together apple butter and Dijon mustard—thick and intensely flavored ingredients that wouldn't run off the chops when heated. Next, we adjusted the balance of flavors with maple syrup, soy sauce, and cider vinegar. We applied a thin coating of the glaze to boneless pork chops and slow-roasted them in a low oven until the meat was juicy and tender and the glaze formed a tacky layer on the surface of the meat. Finally, we applied a second, substantial coating of glaze and broiled the chops until the glaze was bubbly and started to char.
