380 calories per serving 


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
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.


  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.
