Apple Pork ChopsPosted: October 13, 2008
My children gave this name to the following recipe the first time I made it. This just screams autumn flavors. What is an added benefit is that it calls for no added salt. Trust me, you don’t miss the salt because the spices make up for the difference. I’ve even given this recipe to my patients who are on a salt restricted diet. Pork loin chops are very low in fat as well.
Braised Pork Medallians With Apples (TNT)
1 pound pork tenderloin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 onion — minced
1 large apple — cored, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup apple cider or juice
Slice pork crosswise into eight “medallions”. Mix seasonings together and coat pork medallians. Heat cooking oil in large skillet; saute pork on both sides to brown, remove from pan and reserve, covered, to keep warm. Add onion and chopped apples to skillet, saute until golden. Add apple cider to skillet, heat to a simmer. Put pork slices in simmering liquid, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
I’ll serve this with green beans and risotto.
