A nice pork chop dish with onions and homemade applesauce. From the Mansion House, Poole, England.
- 2 large golden delicious apples, peeled, cut into 8 wedges
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 4 whole cloves
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 4 center-cut pork chops, 1-inch thick
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 cup beef stock
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons fresh sage, minced or 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried sage, rubbed
- Combine apples, water, 2 tablespoons sugar and cloves in heavy medium saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves. Cover; cook until apples are tender, about 12 minutes. Discard cloves. Using fork, coarsely mash apple mixture. Taste, adding more sugar if desired. Simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
- Melt 4 tablespoons butter in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion; saute until golden, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper. Add to skillet; saute until brown and cooked through, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer to platter; tent with foil. Add both stocks and sage to skillet; bring to boil, scraping up any browned bits. Boil juices until reduced to 1/3 cup, about 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, rewarm onion mixture, stirring occasionally. Rewarm applesauce, stirring occasionally.
- Divide onion among plates. Top with pork. Spoon pan juices over pork and serve with applesauce alongside.
This was very scrumptious and SO easy! And I just realized I completely forgot the SAGE! Aarrrrrgh! Next time I'll make about three times as many onions....that was "almost" the best part of the whole recipe! *Made for ZWT3 Scandinavian Region*
This was very easy to prepare,the only thing I did different,I was using thick cut boneless pork chops and I sliced then about 1/2" thick and after sauteing them I added the broths and sage and put the pork slices back in to cook them until they were tender and the last 2 minutes before they were done I added the onion on top and simmered a couple minutes,my husband and I really enjoyed them,will make this recipe again.I also did not use sugar for the apples,I used splenda and I didn't use butter,I used olive oil to make it less fat.
