Apples and pork chops are a delicious and traditional combination. The vinegar in the relish helps offset the sweetness of the raisins and sugar.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Make the relish: In a medium saucepan, combine the apples, sugar, raisins, vinegar, ginger, and cayenne over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat; simmer, partially covered, until apples are soft, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Make the pork chops: Season chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops, and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve with apple-raisin relish.

Cook's Notes

Try the tart-sweet relish with other cuts of pork, such as roasts, tenderloin, or ham.

Not bad but the relish was dull. Adding salt and lime made it a lot better!

I made this again one year later and it's still good. I cooked the pork chops in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. It was done in a little over 3 minutes per side.
