Sumptuous Sundays: My Pork Chops w/ Caramelized Apples recipe+Go Nuts Donuts Holidays



 Hello guys! I am sharing one of my family's favorite recipes of mine, Pork Chops with Caramelized Apples. I cooked this yummy dish yesterday for lunch and every single thing on the serving plate was devoured by my family! Allow me to brag, this recipe of mine is really good! Go ahead and cook it for your family and let me know what they think! :)

Here are the stuff you'll need:


 Lean, boneless Pork chops, 5 pieces

- Go for the ones with minimal fat trimmings for a healthier dish. Cut off the excess fat on the topmost portion of the meat and throw it away. If the pork chop is too big, cut it into half


Condiments: Salt, Paprika, Rosemary, Ground Black Pepper, and Flour (not in the photo)

PORK CHOP RECIPE


 Step 1: Sprinkle an ample amount of salt, paprika, pepper, and rosemary on the pork chops. Leave it for 5 minutes to allow the spices to infuse the meat. Prepare the flour as you leave it to settle.


 Step 2: After 5 minutes, coat the pork chops lightly with flour.


 Step 3: Heat cooking oil on a frying pan. Make sure it's piping hot before you toss the pork chops in it so the meat would be cooked thoroughly. I used Olive Oil because it's healthier. Another cheaper but healthy alternative to Olive Oil is Canola Oil. Cook each side for 3-5 minutes, depending on the cooking power of your stove.

CARAMELIZED APPLES RECIPE


 Step 1: Cut 1 large apple and 1 medium- sized white onion into bite- sized cubes. 


 Step 2: Prepare the following for the caramelization of the apples and onions: Balsamic Vinegar, Red Wine, Rosemary, and Butter.


 Step 3: In a hot saucepan, toss 1 tablespoon of soft butter and allow to melt. However, on this type of cooking pan, the butter burns easily so....


(Step 4) toss the apples and onions quickly into it once the butter turns brown. Allow the apples and onions to soften up for 5-8 minutes.


 Step 5: When the apples and onions are fork- tender already, pour half a cup of Balsamic Vinegar and 1 shot glass- full of wine into the saucepan and allow to simmer on low heat for 8-10 minutes to allow the whole mixture to caramelize. Sprinkle some Rosemary on it to give it a fragrant aroma. Stir the mixture every 2 minutes to prevent the Balsamic Vinegar from burning. Should you need more Balsamic Vinegar, gradually sprinkle some on the saucepan.


 And we are done! Transfer the pork chops on a clean serving plate, then top the slices with the caramelized apples.

 It goes so well with steaming white rice!

Our dessert yesterday is this mouthwatering set of Christmas Donuts from Go Nuts Donuts. Look! It even matches our table cloth!


 I must say, Go Nuts Donuts' donuts now are more tolerable because they've become lightly sweet. I had a problem eating their ultra sweet donuts before and I'm glad to know they have revamped the recipe! The donuts look so nice, you can actually give the whole thing as a gift!


 We also got this box of Christmas cookies from them.

These light and milky cookies go so well with coffee, a perfect merienda combination!

I hope you like my recipe! Please don't forget to visit GO NUTS DONUTS on Facebook for more information about their Holiday donuts and cookies!

  7. Eloise: Hi there! Sadly, nothing can replace wine. It's either I'm not looking for any alternative, or I just love wine too much hehe. :D

    Jenny, Harmony, Sincere, Jaja: Thanks girls! :D

    Aviva: Used to love pork fat too, until I became health (and figure) conscious. :)
