Apples and pork are a classic combination; here, the apples are cooked with white wine and shallots for an even richer flavor.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Heat broiler; set rack 4 inches from heat. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high. Add shallots; cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Cover pan; reduce heat to medium. Continue cooking until shallots are soft, about 5 minutes more.

  • Add apples and wine; cover, and cook until apples are beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Uncover; cook, stirring, until most of the liquid has evaporated and apples are tender, 2 to 4 minutes more. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.

  • While apples are cooking, season pork chops generously with salt and pepper; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. To serve, spoon warm apple mixture over chops. Serve pork chops with Wilted Spinach with Nutmeg, if desired.

Cook's Notes

If you prefer, you can replace the white wine with an equal amount of apple cider.

Weejee, you are probably over cooking them. Pork doesn't have to be cooked as much as in the 'old days!

Does adding the wine tenderize the pork chops? I find pork chops to be so tough that I've stopped eating them. How does one make them chewable? Yes, I've tried pounding them, but it didn't work.

Thank you! The nutmeg idea is great. A favorite spice in my house, it blends beautifully with the other ingredients. This dish is nice with silted spinach topped with some pine nuts. Kudos Martha!

This recipe is fantastic! I grilled my pork chops instead of broiling them and sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg on each pork chop before grilling and it really enhanced the flavor! I will definitly make this recipe again!
