When I saw the ingredients I knew right away I had to try an apple and pork combination. So I tested out my recipe and got the approval of my family and so I decided to enter. This is a very simple recipe that cooks quickly. It is great with stuffing and a green veggie of your choice.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 4 boneless pork loin chops (1-inch thick)
- 5 cups apples (cored and sliced, peel on if preferred)
- 1 cup red onion (sliced)
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
Spiced Maple Sauce
- 1Mix all ingredients in spice rub together and sprinkle over chops top and bottom.
- 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- 3Spray an oven proof, non-stick skillet with lid with cooking spray.
- 4Brown chops 3 minutes per side on medium high heat, uncovered. Remove from skillet and set aside.
- 5Add apples and onions to skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until they start to brown.
- 6Place chops over apple/onion mixture.
- 7Pour in chicken broth, cover and cook about 20 minutes. The pork chops should reach 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
- 8Take the chops out of the oven and let stand for 10 minutes to completely cook the chops and not dry them out.
- 9After taking chops out of oven combine spiced maple sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan.
- 10Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until mixture reduces to desired consistency. We like ours thin, so we only cooked about two minutes.
- 11Pour sauce over chops and apples. Enjoy.
