One time on a business trip a few years back, I had dinner at the 360 degree restaurant at the top of the CN Tower in Toronto. I had this delicious pork chop and apple skillet meal that in just checking on the website, they no longer serve right now. (here’s the menu if you want to check out other delights!)
I never did forget that dinner and planned to find something similar that I could make for D.
I found this Caramel Apple Pork Chops recipe on Allrecipes.com and finally made it the other night!
I really like this site as I can save the recipes in a virtual recipe box, but I also love to read the first few reviewers who always have helpful alterations. As per suggestions, I pan seared my thick pork chops in the skillet before putting it in the oven to bake. After making the apple part (with Granny Smiths) in the skillet and letting it simmer for a bit, I poured that mixture on top of the pork chops, covered in foil and let it bake some more in the oven.
I paired this pork chop meal with some oven baked roasted potatoes. Personally, I think it came out really yummy! D agreed and so I’m adding to the rotation of recipes we liked!
In the future I would:
- Use only one apple as I threw out a lot of left over pieces
- Make only 1 potato as the side or a lighter side. We didn’t eat all of the potatoes as the apples were filling with the pork chops!
