Here is a delicious recipe I found while working on my weekly meal plan and adjusted it a bit to my liking. The sweetness of the apples and brown sugar combined with cinnamon and a little bit of curry really make this dish yummy! Served with curry rice and a green salad.
Pork Chops with Apple Spice Gravy
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
6 pork chops (family pack)
Salt and pepper
4 Tablespoons flour
2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored, thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon Curry powder
2/3 cup apple juice
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash allspice or nutmeg
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large skillet, melt oil over medium heat. Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper; coat lightly with flour on both sides. Brown the chops in the oil for about 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Arrange the browned chops in a 9x 12 baking dish.
To the skillet with drippings, add the sliced apples, butter, and brown sugar . In a bowl, mix apple juice, cornstarch and seasonings until smooth and pour over the apple mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes. Pour the apple mixture over the chops. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
Yes, this dish does take an extra 15 minutes to cook. Not the usual for my 30-minute family dinners, but it’s worth it!
