4 cups (1/2-inch) slices peeled Granny Smith apples (about 4 medium)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash of salt
How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients, and sprinkle over the pork. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add pork; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove the pork from pan. Cover and keep warm.
Melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add apples and remaining ingredients, and cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Serve the apples with pork.
Pretty good and easy to make - I grilled the pork. DD wasn't a big fan and thought the meat was bland. I served it with mashed potatoes.
*************Update: Ok - I made it again and now it is 4 stars. It helps to use fresh dried sage. :-)
Just made this tonight because I wanted something quick and it came out amazing.
I didn't do it exactly to the letter because I just used what I had on hand, but it was great.
-No sage. Used half oregano and half parlsey instead.
-No chops. Used pork rib meat cut into 1 inch sections.
-Used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil.
-No lemon juice. Omitted completely.
-Only had 1 apple on hand so that is what I used. Did not peel the apple.
I will definitely be using this recipe again!
Such a quick and easy weeknight recipe, especially if you peel and slice the apples ahead of time! I varied the spices in the rub on the pork chop and used rosemary and thyme with the salt and pepper, which was really good, too! Instead of the pasta, I served it with cauliflower "mashed potatoes" with sour cream, chives, and parmesan cheese -- a nice way to sneak in vegetables! This recipe is a repeater in our house!
I did not use Granny Smiths, but instead Fugis. I think Granny Smiths would add some more complexity, but a good recipe all around. Paired it with a sour cream and chive mashed potatoes. Quick and easy to make.
