Pork chops with apple sauce is a really great combination of traditional flavours and with a few vegetables this makes a satisfying and healthy dinner.
Ingredients: Serves two
- 20g plain flour
- Pinch of ground sea salt
- Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
- 2x 100g pork chops, fat removed
- ½ tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
- 1 medium cooking apple or 2 firm eating apples
- 2 teaspoon caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
Season the flour with the salt and pepper then cover with the flour and cook in a medium oiled frying pan or griddle for 5–8 minutes, depending on thickness.
Turn the chops once and cook them for a further 3–5 minutes or until they are completely cooked through, the pork should feel firm, but not hard. Remove the chops from pan onto a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes, keeping them warm in a low heat oven or with some kitchen foil, placed just over the top.
Whilst the chops are cooking, peel, core and chop the apple then cook in a small saucepan. Add the sugar and lemon juice, bring to the boil and simmer for 3–4 minutes, add a tiny bit of water if the apples get a little sticky in the pan.
Once they are cooked, blend or mash the apples – the finer you can get the apples the better. Serve on the side with the pork.
Serve with a selection of vegetables, the leek and potato mash complements this pork dish really well.
