Pork Loin Chops with Caramelized Apples

Friday, October 11, 2013

One of our fun family traditions is to go apple picking. This always results in too many apples. I have already baked an apple cake recipe here:http://www.saladgirlnat.com/2013/05/super-easy-apple-cake.html and the kids and I have been snacking on apples daily. This was another good way to use a few more apples and it was a delicious and fast dinner. The pork and the wine infused the apples with fantastic flavor. 


4 Bone In  Loin Pork Chops
1-2 tablespoons of oil for frying
1 teaspoon sage (I was in a hurry and used dry)
Few tablespoons of flour for dredging (I used whole wheat)
2-3 Apples (I used golden delicious but any apple will do)—peeled, cored and sliced
½  cup of white wine
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
Salt to taste

Wash and dry pork. Add a few tablespoons of flour onto a large plate. Heat oil on a large skillet till nice and hot, about 2 minutes. In the meantime, coat pork chops with flour.
Add pork chops to skillet  and cook 3-5 minutes per side depending on how thick the chops are and how well done you want the chops to be cooked. 
Add salt, pepper and dry sage to each side.

Remove chops and keep warm. Keeping pan on medium, deglaze pan with white wine. Add apples and allow to cook through, about 5 minutes. Add brown sugar and cook another few minutes till cooked through. Return pork chops to skillet for another minute.

Serve pork chops topped with apples. I prepared pureed pumpkin (another fruit of our farm visit) as a side.
