I tossed a load of laundry in the washing machine and then broke out my trusty recipe binder and flipped to the Pork Chops and Apples recipe I printed out from Eat Better America’s Web site.
I fixed myself a nice plate. The apples were definitely my favorite part of this recipe!
The recipe was pretty decent, though the pork was a tad on the dry side. Ryan had the suggestion to top the meat with applesauce next time which seems like a good idea to me. I might also shorten the baking time.
Despite some dry bites, I still managed to clear my plate!
Here’s the recipe:
|1||medium unpeeled cooking apple, sliced|
|2||tablespoons packed brown sugar|
|1/4||teaspoon ground cinnamon|
|2||pork rib chops, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick (about 1/4 lb each)|
|1.||Heat oven to 350°F. Place apples in ungreased 1 1/2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.|
|2.||Remove fat from pork. Spray 8- or 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes. Cook pork in hot skillet about 5 minutes, turning once, until light brown. Place pork in single layer on apples.|
|3.||Cover; bake about 45 minutes or until pork is no longer pink in center and apples are tender.|
