APPLE CURRANT PORK CHOPS (Serves 4)
4 TBSP Dried Currants (These can be found in the dried fruit section at a specialty grocery like Sprouts.)
3 TBSP Unsalted Butter
1 1/2 LBS Golden Delicious Apples, cored, and cut into about 8 wedges per apple
4 Pork Loin Chops
2 TSP Sugar
Heat 1 TSP of butter in a large frying pan, add the currants. Cook for about 3 minutes. Move currants from the pan to a small bowl and set aside.
Add 1 1/2 TBSP butter to the hot pan and reduce heat to medium-high. Place the apple wedges in the pan and cook for about 15 minutes, turning occasionally.
Add remaining butter to a separate large frying pan. Set heat to medium-high and add pork chops. Turn occasionally until meat is done (slightly brown and 165° if you’re using a thermometer). Transfer to platter and keep warm.
Sprinkle the sugar over the apples and return the currants to the pan as well. Mix well. Cook for 1 minute. Spoon apples and currants over the pork chops and serve.
