Pork Chops with Apples 
Difficulty: Beginner  |  Prep Time: 35 Minutes  |  Serves 4

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups dry cider
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 3 medium tart-sweet apples, cored, peeled and sliced into eighths
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • ½ cup crème fraîche
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350˚F.

Season the pork generously with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Sear the meat until golden on both sides. Stir in the cider and stock. Add the apple slices, cover and place in the oven. Cook for about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and transfer the meat and apples to a warm serving platter. Cover and keep warm. Melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the cooking liquid and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the crème fraîche. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with potatoes or buttered noodles.
