Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 large cooking apples I used Braeburn (peeled, cored, and sliced)
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon raw sugar
  • 2/3 cups dry, hard cider (I used Crispin - or substitute apple cider)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon wholegrain mustard I used Grey Poupon
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • springs of thyme to garnish

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook pork chops until well browned on both sides, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pork chops and keep warm. Add the butter and apple slices to the skillet, and cook until the apples begin to brown.
  • Add the garlic and sugar, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the hard apple cider, mustard, apple cider vinegar, and chopped thyme. Boil for a few minutes until sauce bubbles and thickens slightly.
  • Place pork chops on a plate, and top with the apple cider sauce. Serve with creamy mashed potatoes.

Notes

Substitute regular apple cider for a non-alcoholic version.
