Posts Tagged ‘pork chops and applesauce’

Its taken me a while to answer my first request, but here is my recipe for pork chops and apples.  I’ve made this about 25 times.  I always improvise but never really deviate from the basic honey and mustard combo because I like it so much.  You could definitely add different things to the sauce to spice it up. 

I had to use boneless chops because they were the only thing that looked good at the store when I was shopping.  If you are using chops on the bone add a few extra minutes to the cooking time.  I like my cinnamon apples really soft, so I cook them for about 25 minutes total.  If you like a little more texture reduce the cooking time at the end to 4 – 5 minutes.

Honey Mustard Pork Chops

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 pork loin chops ½ – ¾ inch thick
  • ½ cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • Salt and pepper

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium – medium high heat.  Season chops on both sides with salt and pepper.  Add chops to hot skillet and cook until browned, 3 – 5 minutes.  Turn chops and brown 3 minutes.  In a small bowl mix together the apple juice, mustard, honey, sage, and salt and pepper to taste.  Add mixture to skillet pouring it over the chops.  Reduce heat to low and cover.  Cook for about 4 minutes, or until just done.  Remove chops to serving plate.  Cook the sauce remaining in pan over medium high heat until slightly thickened and reduced.  Remove from heat.  Serve pork chops with sauce.

Sautéed Cinnamon Apples

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 – 5 Granny Smith or other firm apple, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Heat oil over medium heat; add apple slices to pan and sauté until slightly softened 5 – 7 minutes.  Reduce heat to medium low and add butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Stir to combine and cook for an additional 8 – 10 minutes.
