Pork Chops with a Creamy Apple Sauce January 6, 2017

pork-3

This is a lovely tasty way of doing pork. Serve with creamy mashed potato and savoy cabbage for a great meal.

Serves 2

Takes about 30-35 minutes

 

Ingredients

 

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 pork chops, or you can use pork loin chops as I did because that’s what I had in the freezer

1 sml onion, diced

300ml apple juice

1 eating apple, I used Royal Gala. No need to peel but core and cut into wedges

1 clove of garlic finely chopped

2 Tbsp creme fraiche

1 Tbsp whole grain mustard

1/2 tsp dried parsley (optional)

 

Method

 

Heat the oil in a large deep frying pan and brown the chops for about 4-5 minutes each side, then transfer to a plate and set aside.

Soften the onion and garlic in the same pan, then return the chops to the pan with any juices from the chops.

Pour in the apple juice and bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, turning the chops halfway through.

Transfer the chops to a plate again and add the apple wedges to the pan, stir in the creme fraiche, mustard and add a sprinkle of salt and pepper, then simmer to reduce and thicken the sauce until the apples are tender.

Return the chops to the pan and simmer for another 5-10 minutes and sprinkle on the parsley, if using.

 

 

Apple Skillet Cake December 4, 2011

Filed under: Apple,Cake,Cinnamon,Eggs,Evaporated Milk,Sugar — dogsmum @ 9:06 pm

 

Visually this cake isn’t very appealing but it makes up for it in taste. It’s full of  flavour and very moist.

Nice hot as a dessert with custard, ice-cream or cream or eaten cold.

 

Ingredients

1/3 cup margarine

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup self raising flour

1/3 cup evaporated milk

2/3 cup sugar

5-6 apples, peeled and sliced

3 Tbsp additional melted margarine

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 egg, well beaten

1/3 cup water

 

Method

Melt butter in a skillet (frying pan).

Stir in 2/3 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.

Top with apple slices, cover and keep on a medium heat for ten minutes.

In a separate bowl, stir together flour, 1/3 cup sugar and 3/4 tsp cinnamon.

Combine 3 Tbsp melted margarine, egg, milk and water in a separate bowl.

Add to flour mixture and mix until just moistened.

Spoon over hot apples.

Cover and cook on stove top for twenty minutes on a low heat or until firm to touch.

Turn out onto plate.
