Pork chops and apples are great together and so was this pork chop bake. Served buttered brown rice, broccoli, rolls and enjoyed! Made for RSC #10.
- 6 boneless pork chops
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons crumbled dried sage
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 3 granny smith apples (or other tart variety, sliced 1/4 inch thick)
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup golden raisin
- Using salt and sage, season pork chops evenly on both sides. In a large skillet over a medium flame, heat the vegetable oil and brown pork chops on both sides. Transfer chops to a shallow baking dish and save pan drippings.
- Peel, core, and slice apples layering them over pork chops. Drizzle the maple syrup over the apples slices.
- Sprinkle flour over the pan drippings that were saved and cook until brown, stirring occasionally. Add chicken broth and stir constantly until mixture is smooth. Bring to a boil, stir in vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and raisins. Pour mixture over the pork chops and apples, cover pan with aluminum foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes.
I'm being a bit chintzy with my 5 star rating lately but this dish is totally deserving! I made them as directed but cooked them for a little less time. I thought the sauce was marvelous! Although I cut the chops back to just 2 portions I made the full amount of sauce so there was plenty for the mashed potatoes as well. Yummy recipe - Thanks!
Fantastic. The sauce/gravy was perfection. We were able to use it on the mashed potatoes too.i used poultry seasoning because thats what i had. other than that no changes. The apples had to be taken out before the pork because they were getting too soft. Thanks! My son and fiancé loved it.
Easy to make, tasted good, can't get much better than that. I was a little light handed with the sage since I wasn't sure how it would taste, but I learned I can definitely be more heavy handed with it. Thanks for a great meal. Thanks lauralie! Made for ZWT8 trip to France.
