Maple Roasted Pork with Apples Recipe

Pompano Beach Personal Chef

We had access to a LOT of apples considering my grandparents renovated a cider mill to live in. We became very adept in finding new uses for the many varieties on the property.

Serves 4
4 pork chops
¼ teaspoon/1ml thyme
½ teaspoon/2ml salt
¼ teaspoon/1ml pepper
1 onion, sliced thin
½ cup/125ml maple syrup
½ cup/125ml chicken stock
2 MacIntosh apples cored and cut into rings or wedges
¼ cup/118ml brown sugar
Preheat oven to 375F/190C/GasMark5
Season chops with salt, pepper and thyme on both sides. Spray baking dish with olive oil. Place sliced onions in baking dish and top with chops. Mix maple syrup, chicken stock together. Pour over chops. Dip apple rings in brown sugar and cover the chops. Place foil over the baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and cook for another 10-15 minutes, until sugar is bubbling and pork reaches 165F/74C.
