Pork Chops with Apple Curry Sauce
4 (1 inch thick) pork chops
salt & pepper to taste
1 large onion, diced
1 large apple, cored and diced
1 1/2 cups applesauce
2 cups apple juice (I used one cup)
1/4 c margarine (I used butter)
2 Tbs. chicken bouillon granules
1 clove garlic, minced
3 Tbs curry powder (I used 1 Tbs. and it was plenty)
1. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium-heat, brown pork chops in a small amount of oil, flipping once to brown both sides. Arrange in baking dish.
2. In the same skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook and stir onions and apples in butter until caramelized.
3. Stir in applesauce, apple juice, chicken bouillon, garlic and curry powder. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour over chops and cover dish with foil.
4. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 40 minutes, or until pork chops are cooked through.
On the side, I served Seeds of Change quinoa and brown rice, that I buy at Costco. It's a nice change from plain old rice, with a rich, nutty flavor. I suppose I should add that this is not an endorsement, it's just my little ole' opinion.
