Recipe Card


  • 4- 5 pork chops (bone-in or boneless will work too)
  • 2 peaches, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon walnut oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Sprinkle of rosemary
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, plus more for garnish


  • Step 1

    Season pork chops generously with salt and pepper on all sides, then set aside.

  • Step 2

    Next, in a small mixing bowl combine the following: walnut oil, honey, and vanilla. Mix until well combined, then set aside.

  • Step 3

    In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add peach slices and rosemary. Then add about 1/4 of the oil/honey mixture and move peaches around to gently coat. Cook peaches until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes. Then, transfer peaches to a small dish. Cover.

  • Step 4

    Next, in the same skillet (no need to clean it out) cook pork chops on both sides until golden brown. As you cook them add most of the remaining oil/honey mixture, and allow it to thicken in the pan/coat the chops as they cook.

  • Step 5

    Once pork chops are almost done cooking add peaches back to the pan, along with the walnuts and thyme. Move nuts and peaches around to coat.

  • Step 6

    Cover and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes. Then, pour any remaining oil/honey mixture on top, and serve immediately.
