Pork Chops with Apples and Cider

Pork with Apple and Cider 001Cooking with Apple Cider

I am really enjoying the combination of pork with apples and like to kick it up a notch in flavor and arthritis friendly ingredients by adding apple cider vinegar.  I use bone-in thick pork chops, season with salt, pepper and dried sage.  Sear in pan both sides until nicely brown.  Transfer to an oven safe dish and bake at 400 15-20 min.  I deglazed pan with a splash of white wine then added the sliced apples and green onions and satue to soften but not turn to mush.  I then added 1 1/2 Tbs of good quality apple cider vinegar and seasoned the dish to taste  with salt, pepper, dried sage and a dash of cinnamon.

Served it with sides of brown rice and roasted asparagus.  This is a new rice product that I tried and would like to report it is fantastic.  Good quality organic brown rice that is ready in 1 and a half minutes.  This is not “instant” rice but is basically instant to prepare.  I added some butter to it when serving and we really loved it.  The texture and flavor was top notch and was ready in a flash.
