Pork chops cooked with apples.

Preparation : 5 min Cooking : 25 min
430 calories/serving


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] 0.2 g
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.


  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.
