Juicy Savory Pork Chops


Are you making this? 
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 1.5" thick center cut pork chops
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup yellow onions; julienned
2 large golden delicious apples; peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary; chopped
2 teaspoons garlic; minced
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/4 cup Calvados or brandy
1 1/4 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup pitted prunes; quartered
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons fresh parsley; chopped
1 Sweet Potatoes; Mashed, recipe follows

Original recipe makes 4



In a large deep saute pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Season the chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Add to the pan and cook until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate to rest.

To the fat in the pan, add the onions and cook, stirring, until beginning to color, about 5 minutes. Add the apples, rosemary, and garlic, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the sugar and stir. Add the Calvados and bring to a boil, stirring to deglaze the pan. Add the stock and prunes and bring to a boil. Return the chops and any accumulated juices to the pan, cover, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the pork and fruit are very tender and the pork reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F, about 30 minutes.

Remove the pork to a plate and cover to keep warm. Add the cream to the pan and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and adjust seasoning, to taste. Pour any accumulated juices from the meat into the pan.

Nice sauce. My only complaint is no instruction on what to do with Parsley and potato? I would also cook chops in sauce on low heat.
