Pork Chops with Apple Cider Gravy

Pork Chops with Apple Cider Gravy
From: Cooking During Stolen Moments

  • 3 T. oil

  • 6 – 8 bone-in pork loin chops

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 2 c. apple cider

  • 1/4 c. brown sugar

  • 3 T. stone ground mustard

  • 1/2 t. salt

  • 1/2 t. pepper

  • 1/4 t. allspice

  • 3 red apples, sliced

  • 1/3 c. raisins

  • 1/3 c. sliced green onions

  • 1/4 c. corn starch

  • 1/3 c. water

    Heat oil in a large skillet. Season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper, to taste. Brown chops in oil, about 2-3 minutes per side. Place in a large baking dish.
    2. In a bowl, whisk together apple cider, brown sugar, mustard, salt, pepper and allspice. Pour over the pork chops in the baking dish. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes, until fully cooked.
    3. Remove pork chops and keep warm. Pour cider and drippings into a sauce pan. Bring to a slow boil. Add the apples, raisins and green onions. Cook for 5-8 minutes, until the apples begin to soften and the raisins plump.
    4. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and slowly stir into the boiling mixture. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until thickened. Spoon over the pork chops and serve the extra to pass.

    I used yellow apples and it was good. They were very flavorful. We all really enjoyed them!!
