Pork chops with apples and cider

A recipe from the Good Food collection.


Pork chops with apples and cider
Pork chops with apples and cider
1 tablespoon oil
2 onions, sliced
2 Golden Delicious apples, cored and cut into wedges
2 teaspoons caster (superfine) sugar
2 teaspoons butter
4 thick pork chops, snipped around the edges
80 ml (⅓ cup) cider
80 ml (⅓ cup) cream


1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, add the onion and fry for about 5 minutes, or until soft and just beginning to brown. Tip the onion out onto a plate.

2. Add the apple wedges to the pan and fry them for a minute or two — they should not break up, but should start to soften and brown. Add the sugar and butter and shake everything around in the pan until the apples start to caramelize. Transfer the apples to the plate with the onion.

3. Put the pork chops in the frying pan, add a bit of seasoning and fry them for 4 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through. Put the onion and apple back in the pan and heat them up, then add the cider and bring to a simmer. Once the liquid is bubbling, add the cream and shake the pan so everything mixes together. Let it bubble for a minute, then season well and serve with potatoes and a green salad —watercress goes particularly well.
