Apple Pork Chops




Prep Time: 30 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

This is one of my family's most requested recipes.


INGREDIENTS:


¼ cup all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon paprika

1/8 teaspoon white pepper

6 (1/2-inch-thick) pork chops

¼ cup vegetable oil

2 medium-sized cooking apples

2 cups apple juice, divided

3 tablespoons brown sugar

½ teaspoon ground allspice


Combine first 4 ingredients in a shallow bowl; dredge pork chops in mixture. Reserve remaining flour mixture. Brown pork chops in oil in a large skillet. Arrange chops in a 13-x-9-x-2-inch baking dish.

Core unpeeled apples, and cut into rings; place on chops. Pour 1 ½ cups apple juice over apples. Combine sugar and allspice; sprinkle over apples. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until chops are tender.

Remove pork chops and apple slices to a serving platter, reserving pan drippings. Dissolve 1 ½ tablespoons remaining flour mixture in remaining ½ cup apple juice. Combine flour mixture and pan drippings in a saucepan; cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Serve sauce over pork chops.

Yield: 6 servings.

I just tried this with a pork loin. I butterflied it and stuffed it with all the apples. I still put some on top as well. I baked it at 375 for 90 minutes. YUM.
