This is probably the simplest, certainly the most traditional and, to many people, the best way of serving pork chops.
They are seasoned, fried in a little butter and cooked with apples. Roast potatoes are the traditional accompaniment to Pork Chops with Apples and shredded cabbage or green beans mav be served too.
4 large pork chops
½ teaspoon salt -1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 oz. butter
3 cooking apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon soft brown sugar
Place the pork chops on a board and rub them all over with the salt, pepper and rosemary. Set aside.
In a large frying-pan, melt the butter over moderate heat. When the foam subsides, add the chops and cook them for 10 minutes on each side.
Add the sliced apples to the pan and sprinkle over the sugar. Cover the pan and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the pork chops are thoroughly cooked and tender.
Using tongs, transfer the chops to a heated serving dish. Keep them hot while you finish cooking the apples.
Increase the heat to moderately high and cook the apples, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat. Spoon the apples over the pork. Serve immediately.
