Pork Chops with Cyder Apple Sauce

This yet another of Lindsey Bareham ‘s recipes that I’ve cooked in the past, but in the move the cutting seems to have disappeared.  However, I did find it on the web.

The ingredients are as follows and the quantities serve four.

  • 4 thick pork loin chops
  • 1 tbsp groundnut or sunflower oil for the apple sauce:
  • 2 Bramley cooking apples
  • 1 medium wine glass of cider
  • 25g butter
  • 1 tbsp sugar

The method is as follows.

  1. Heat the oven to 400F/200C/gas mark 6.
  2. Begin with the apple sauce. Peel, core and quickly chop the apples. Place in a pan with the cider. Cover and boil hard for about 5 minutes until the apple is collapsed. Stir in the butter and sugar to make a fluffy sauce. Keep warm or allow to cool; I like hot chops and cold sauce.
  3. Prepare the chops by cutting down the rind in 3 or 4 places right to the meat, so that when the chops cook they don’t buckle. Season the chops with sea salt, rubbing salt into the rind. Heat the oil in an ovenproof frying pan and fry the chops for 2 minutes a side.
  4. Finish the cooking in the hot oven, leaving the chops for 5-10 minutes, depending on thickness, until cooked through and the rind crisp. Transfer to a warm plate and leave to rest for 10 minutes before serving with the apple sauce and mashed or new potatoes.

I’m afraid that I haven’t got an ovenproof frying pan, so I just fried the chops in a little olive oil in my non-stick one.
