Honey Pork Chops with ApplesauceTuesday, September 24, 2013
From our skinny table to yours ...
Fall has officially started and we are ready for the comfort foods the season change brings! Nothing feels more like fall than apple picking, caramel apples & apple pie (in moderation!), apple cider, applesauce ... noticing a theme here ;) Today we are taking advantage and whipping up our comforting dish of honey pork chops topped with homemade applesauce!
This dish is super simple but tastes so good you'll think it cooked all day making it perfect for fall dinner parties. We start by brushing our boneless pork chops with a touch of organic honey for sweetness. Our apple sauce is a tasty combination of chopped apples browned in a teaspoon of butter. We season them with cinnamon, a touch of brown sugar and simmer them up in fresh apple cider until the sauce is warm & cooked through.
Hope you enjoy this fresh fall meal!
