Ingredients

2 pork chops, boneless   280 g
2 apples, peeled and cut into quarters   360 g
1/4 cup butter, unsalted   55 g
1 tbsp canola oil   15 mL
1 tbsp bread crumbs   8 g
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Briefly wash the chops and pat-dry. Coat with bread crumbs. Peel the apples and cut them into quarters.
  2. Heat the oil and half of the butter in a pan over high heat, paying attention not to let it burn. Sauté the chops quickly on each side until they are lightly coloured, 4-5 min total.
  3. Add the apples and cook rapidly (2-3 min). Lower the heat, add the remaining butter, cover, and cook 8-10 min.
  4. Add salt and pepper, then turn the chops and apples. Cook, covered, an additional 8-10 min. Serve on the warmed plates.
