Caramel Apple Pork Chops

In Pork on October 15, 2009 at 12:30 am

Sweet and salty always make a good combo in my book.  Even better, I already had the ingredients in stock. (save for the apples, but I live 1 minute from the super market)

Instead of going to either my neighborhood’s or Dan’s gym, we decided to go to South West Rec Center to take advantage of the multitude of machines to better enhance our pectorals.


  • 6 Pork Chops
  • 2 tart apples (granny smiths)
  • 1 white onion
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Salt and Pepper

Another 2 pan operation here. Get them both going on medium-high (7). Mix the ingredients listed in blue in a small bowl. Chop the onions and apples. Put two table spoons of butter in one pan, let it melt down, then add the onions and apples. After a minute or two, dump in the bowl of goodness and mix around really well. Now that the ‘onions and apples’ pan has been cooking for about 5 minutes, drop your pork in the other pan and sprinkle it with a little salt and pepper. Let those go for about 5 minutes. (remember to stir the apples and onions occasionally.) After that 5 minutes is up, take the onions and apples out of the pan and set them aside, being particular in trying to keep the juices in the pan. Throw another 2 table spoons butter down in what was the ‘onions and apples’ pan, and a bit more of the GOOD STUFFin the same proportions(you probably won’t need as much as the first time around). Now flip your pork over in the other pan, let it cook for about 4 minutes. At which point, bring it to the pan with the GOOD STUFFand swirl it around while it cooks for another 2 minutes or so. Flip it and swirl it around in the pan one more time, until you see that nice golden coat.

Served without drinks.

Average Cost per Person:~$2-3
