Pork Chops with Apples 0 5 0


1Heat the oven to 350. Sauté the pork chops in butter or oil over medium high heat. You want to get a nice golden brown on each side of the chops, about 3-4 minutes per side, and then move them to the oven to finish cooking. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the chops. Check after 8-10 minutes: press the center of the chop. When it begins to firm up it is cooked enough. Try to avoid over cooking.

2While the chops are in the oven, pour off the oil from the sauté pan. Add 1 tbsp butter, some thinly sliced onion and sliced apples. Toss the onions and apples to coat with the butter and take on a little color. Add some honey. The honey and butter will caramelize. Add some of the cider (about 1/4 cup to start) and let the mixture reduce to create the sauce for the pork chops.

3Bring the chops from the oven. Season with salt and pepper. Place the pork chops on the dinner plates or a serving platter and spoon the apple, onion and cider sauce over the chops.

4Serve braised greens or a root vegetable mash alongside.

We tried this tonight with the chops we got in the summer share and leftover apples from the winter share. I didn’t have a fresh onion, so I substituted a medley of onion, celery and garlic I had frozen for stock. I didn’t have cider either, so I substituted vegetable broth. Delicious and definitely a new favorite!
