Served with my homemade applesauce!
Sometimes, this girl just craves pork chops. They bring me back to my childhood. My mother didn’t cook a lot, but there were a few things that she did remarkable well and pork chops were one of them. I can still picture her in the kitchen with me standing by watching and hoping for a little taste before dinner. A lovely memory to savor as I write this column. Back to today, I love this recipe because it is so quick and easy and when served with my applesauce, I am in heaven.
Note: My simple classic applesauce recipe can be found in “The Basics”
Serves: 2 Time Needed: 20 minutes total
2 Thick sliced boneless center cut pork chops, each cut in half, making 4 thin sliced pork chops (I like doing this myself so that I can get the perfect thickness)
Wildflower Foods Garlic Salt Blend (a mix of sea salt, garlic granules, and black pepper)
A few extra grinds of freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup of apple cider, chicken stock, or white wine.
1. Slice pork chops to your desired thickness.
2. Generously season both sides of your chops with garlic salt blend and pepper.
3. Heat a saute pan on medium high heat and add enough olive oil to coat the bottom.
4. Add your pork chops and let cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate.
5. Add apple cider, chicken stock, or white wine to the pan, bring to a boil while scraping all the little bits from the bottom.
6. Reduce heat to low, put your pork chops back into the pan and let cook to your desired doneness. (I like mine slightly pink in the middle so I only cook them for another minute or so)
7. Remove from the pan and serve spooning some of that delicious pan sauce over them. Great with applesauce!
