Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Meanwhile, rewarm onion mixture, stirring occasionally. Rewarm applesauce, stirring occasionally.
  5. 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.
