DIRECTIONS

  • You will want the apples to be uniform in size. And you don't want the pieces too big or they will take too long to cook. Roughly 1/2 inch pieces will do perfectly.
  • In a medium pot, combine all the ingredients for the applesauce.
  • Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 30 - 40 minutes or until apples are tender. Stirring occasionally.
  • Preheat oven to 300°.
  • While the apples are cooking, combine the breadcrumbs, oregano, sage and pepper in a shallow bowl. One at a time, coat both sides of the pork chops with the Dijon. Press each side into the crumb mixture.
  • In a large, ovenproof skillet, cook the chops in the oil over medium-high heat for 4 - 5 minutes on each side.
  • Then place the skillet into the oven. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. This will finish cooking the chops through the center.
  • Your pork chops and your applesauce should be done right about the same time.
  • Remove the apples from the heat and use a potato masher to mash the apples until the sauce gets to desired consistency. You may want/need to use a blender of some sort (immersion, hand etc.) depending on the apples you chose.
  • Plate the pork chops with a dollop of applesauce on top. Serve with mashed potatoes and corn for a GREAT meal.
