Ingredients

2 pork chops, boneless 280 g
2 apples, peeled and cut into quarters 360 g
1/4 cup margarine non-hydrogenated 55 g
1 tbsp bread crumbs 8 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

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 half of the margarine 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 margarine, 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.

This was a very simple and easy recipe to make. I take care of special needs people, two of them full time and one of them is a fussy eater, but they really enjoyed this dish and the fussy one asked if I would make it again..

It was very good and I also added some sweet potatoe along with the apple and instead of adding margarine to stop everything from sticking, I added a bit of orange juice instead to keep the calories low. It gave a very good orangy taste to the sweet potatoes. Everyone loved it.
