Pork Chops With Garlic and Apples in Wine

"A really simple way to cook chops. The juice is great over mashed potatoes. Adapted slightly from the MEAT cookbook."

  1. We liked this recipe, but thought it could use a little more flavor in the sauce. I think I will try it with carmalized onions, If that does not do it I will try to add just 1/2 teaspoon of Honey.
  2. Very nice.......loved the wine taste !
  3. This was delicious. The flavours of the apple and wine mmmmmmmm. Will definatley make again.
  4. Wow, My DH really liked this tasty Pork chop dish. Very easy to make I made it just like the recipe said. Though next time I am adding more wine, for more sauce.I did use 2 small apples they were delicious cooked with the wine & garlic. This made a yummy dinner, I will be making this again & again.


This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/World%20Tour/ZWT2.gif">
