Pork chops with apple and wine sauce is simple, easy, and elegant. Having just made this tonight, all I can say is wow! The ingredients only took a few minutes to assemble, and the entire dish was cooked in 12 minutes. The taste, without a word of a lie, was out of this world.
Any type of pork chop can be used, although I recommend a nice butterfly chop. The same applies to the wine. You can use any type of wine. I like to use a medium dry, midpriced red wine. The red wine does cause the pork chops to become reddish in color. If you don’t like this discoloration, you can substitute a white wine. If you’re not a fan of spicy or hot food, you may want to consider leaving the Tabasco sauce out. On the other hand, if you want the dish a little spicier, add a little more hot sauce.
In terms of puréeing the apple, I simply peel it, remove the seeds and the core, and pulse it in a blender or food processor for a minute or two. Alternatively, you can peel the apple, remove the core and seeds, boil, and mash it. Again, any type of apple can be used. Personally, I prefer Granny Smith apples.
I think I’ve covered all the bases. If you have any further questions feel free to drop us a line or leave a comment.
- 2 – 3 pork chops
- 1 apple, pureed
- 1/4 cup red wine
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 – 2 drops of hot (tabasco) sauce
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- olive oil
Allow the pork chops to come to room temperature. Season them with salt and pepper on both sides.
Add some olive oil to a hot pan over medium high heat. Place the pork chops in and bronze for 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
Reduce the heat to medium. Add in the wine and the chicken broth and allow to cook for another 2 minutes.
In the mean time, combine the apple purée, dijon mustard, brown sugar, tabasco sauce, and vinegar in a bowl. Using a spoon, stir until well combined.
Add the sauce to the pan, coating the pork chops well on both sides, and simmer uncovered for another 2 minutes. Set them aside and let them rest for a few minutes.
Place the chops on a platter and pour the sauce over. Serve them up with rice or mashed potatoes and the vegetable or your choice.
