Description

Fall’s winning combination – Pork Chops and Apples! Add some sausages and you’re all set for a cozy meal!


Ingredients

4 pork chops (500 grams)

120 ml (1/2 cup) applesauce

salt and pepper, to taste

2 tbsp oil

2 Schublig sausages, sliced thinly

2 medium sized apples, cored and sliced thinly

1 medium sized onion, sliced

60 ml (1/4 cup) heavy cream

60 ml (1/4 cup) applesauce

120 ml (1/2 cup) water

thyme, a few sprigs

salt and pepper, to taste


Instructions

For the marinade:

  1. Season the pork chops generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Pour the applesauce over the pork chops, taking care to completely cover the chops with the sauce.
  3. Cover and marinade for at least 30 minutes.

To cook:

  1. Heat the oil in a pan in medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, sear one side of the pork chops until brown. Repeat on the other side. Remove from the pan and transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the sausages and fry until brown. Remove from the pan and transfer to a plate.
  3. Saute the onions and apples until the onion is translucent.
  4. Mix the applesauce, water, and cream in a bowl. Lower the heat to medium and pour the applesauce mixture over the apples.
  5. Season with salt and pepper. A a few sprigs of rosemary and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring once in a while.
  6. Add the pork chops and sausages, arranging some of the apples and sauce to cover them.
  7. Cook for 3 minutes. Transfer to plate and cool slightly before serving.

Notes

  • Fry the sausages after the chops are done. This prevents sogginess of both the chops and sausages.
  • Put the apple slices in a bowl filled with cold water with a few drop of lemon juice. This prevents browning .
  • You can marinate the pork chops ahead of time (even overnight in the fridge).
