My fail-safe recipe: Pork chops with baked apples

You know when you try a recipe and it turns out to be easy AND delicious?  You hang on to them with dear life (or in my case, record it in my kikki.K recipe book).

This pork chops with baked apples recipe from taste.com.au is one of my all-time favourites.  Zero cooking skills required and the result is oh-so-yummy.

I made a slight change to the recipe, instead of putting the apples and rosemary in the oven at the same time as the pork, I put them in before I cook the pork.  The apples need a bit more time to soften than the time suggested IMO.

The steps are straight forward - cut up the apples, mix with olive oil and rosemary, put the lot in a baking dish and into the oven it goes.


I use green apples this time but the result with red apples is a bit better.

Then oil and season and pork chops and panfry for 2 - 3 minutes each side.


When that's done, put them in the baking dish above the apples, cook for another 10 - 15 minutes and it's ready!


A tip on eating - eat the pork and the apple in the same mouthful. Even though either ingredient tastes good as a standalone, the combination is just magical. The sweetness of the apples perfectly complements the saltiness of the pork, it's like a party in your mouth!

It presents well enough to be served at dinner parties, and as long as you know the key to the dish*, you can't go wrong.

Give it a go! You can thank me later :-)

* The key is to get good quality pork cutlets from a butcher. I made the dish with supermarket pork chops one time and it wasn't the same. Thankfully my butcher's pork chops are awesome.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. This will be a regular dish for my household now since it's so easy to make. I felt that it was missing some sort of sauce even though the apples were sweet and soft...hmm I'll let you know!

  8. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But think about if you added some great pictures or video clips to give
    your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and
    video clips, this website could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Wonderful blog!

  12. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type
    on several websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there
    a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  13. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you've
    done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on
    Safari. Excellent Blog!
