Roasted Pork Chops With Caramelized Quince

"This is a meal suitable for a cool, autumn dinner. The pork chops turn out moist and savory and pair nicely with the sweet and somewhat tangy flavor of quince. I like to eat a slice of quince with each bite of pork chop, as the combination reminds me of harvest season. If you are unable to find quince, two large apples would substitute well (any tart variety such as Macintosh, Granny Smith or Cortland)."

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Season pork chops with poultry seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder. Brush a small baking pan with olive oil. Arrange the pork chops in the baking pan. Roast for 35-40 minutes (simultaneously with the quince) or until fully cooked. Around 20 minutes into roasting, turn the pork chops.
  • Place 3 tbs. cubed butter in a 13" x 9" baking pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Roast for 20 minutes (simultaneously with the pork chops). Toss with a rubber spatula and roast for 20 minutes more or until quince is softened (like apple pie filling) and caramelized.
  • Serve pork chops with quince mixture spooned atop.

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
