Pork Chops with Apple Cider Sauce


I generally don’t make too many recipes that I don’t like, but this sauce I’m not fond of. I’ve never been a fan of apple in anything but apple pie, so I’m not surprised. I just wanted to try something different. I will say though, my husband and children loved it.

It’s almost spring break time here for our schools. I’m looking forward to it this year, because I’m planning to take our Coop somewhere fun. We haven’t been able to do a lot of things this year. At least we finally are doing something with him. What do you do for Spring Break?

4 pork chops

1 tablespoon olive oil

3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper

For the sauce:

1 tablespoon butter

1 cup minced onions

1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic

1 1/2 cups apple cider

1/2 cups chicken broth

1/4 teaspoon sage

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper

Opt: 1 pink lady apple, diced, tossed with 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Salt and pepper pork chops. Brown pork chops on both sides. remove from heat. transfer to a baking sheet. Bake until cooked through.  Put butter in sauce pan and add onion.  cook about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook about 1 minute. Add cider and broth. Add sage. Mix together cornstarch and vinegar in a bowl. Add to pan. Cook until thickened. The recipe says to strain through a sieve. I didn’t. I liked the chunks. Add any juices from the pork. Stir. Top the pork with apples and sauce.

  1. This sounds good to me. I find plain old pork chops usually dry, so this sounds yummy. I do love apples and pork together (picture a pig roast with an apple in the mouth). I am going to try this one.
