Apple Pork Chops


These were a hit. Next time, I will add more mustard, but overall the flavor was great. C even ate all the apples, which is quite the shock because he is not normally a fan of fruit with meat. He cleaned his plate and I didn't question it...

Miss F on the other hand didn't seem to be a fan. She didn't eat any of her pork, but she didn't eat any thing else either. To her credit, she did eat a ton of Cheerios while I was prepping the pork. It only took about 5 minutes, but she can eat her weight in Cheerios in that amount of time.



Apple Pork Chops

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon chopped shallot
2 (1/2-inch thick) pork chops
1/4 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper to taste
1 apple - cored and sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup hot water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Heat oil in an oven proof skillet with a well fitting lid. Saute shallots in oil for 1 minute, or until tender. Remove shallots and set aside. Salt and pepper the pork chops and brown on both sides in oil.

Cover the chops with the apples and cooked shallots. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, mustard, cloves and water. Pour over chops. Cover and bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes.

I made these tonight with a couple of granny smith apples and I increased the mustard like you suggested. They were great and were picky-husband-approved. Thanks for sharing!
