Pork Chops and Roasted Apple Sauce

  • 4 1 1/2″ thick pork chops
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 carrot finely diced
  • 1 rib celery finely diced
  • 3 honey crisp apples peeled, cored and sliced thin
  • 1 cup fresh apple cider
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt/pepper
  • 1 sprig rosemary

In a large oven proof saute pan melt butter over medium heat. Add chops, season with salt and pepper and brown on both sides then remove meat to a plate. Add onion, carrot and celery and saute on medium low until vegetables begin to brown. Add apple and saute until it begins to brown, then clear a space in the pan and return meat and any juice plus rosemary sprig to it. Place pan in an oven at 365 degrees and roast until meat is done, about 20 minutes. Remove form oven and place meat on a plate tented with foil. Bring pan back to medium heat on stove top and add apple cider. Bring to a boil and then cook down until apple can easily be mashed. Mash apples into a smooth sauce adding more cider if necessary. Cook until thick and serve with pork.

    Yes, it might be “technically” apple sauce but, no matter what you call it, with pork it’s delicious.
