Pork Chops with Apples and Curry Sauce

Pork Chops with Apples and Curry Sauce

Ingredients

  • Pork Chops with Apples and Curry Sauce
  • This is an easy dish that is good for company as well. Even people who say they don’t like curry enjoy this dish. I like to serve it with Jasmine rice or wide wheat noodles and steamed or roasted asparagus. You can use non-fat sour cream instead of the heavy cream to make the cream sauce with fewer calories.
  • Serves 6
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 6 thick cut center pork chops
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 Granny Smith or Fuji apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup Calvados (an apple brandy) or white wine
  • 1 tablespoon of apple juice concentrate (don’t worry if you don’t have it)
  • 2 teaspoons of Madras curry powder
  • 2 cups (or 1 can) of chicken broth
  • 1 cup whipping cream, or sour cream (or low fat sour cream)

Instructions

30 minutes before you are going to make the pork chops, remove pork from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature (for more even cooking).

In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons butter over medium high heat. Salt and pepper both sides of pork chops and add to hot skillet. Cook until browned and turn over and reduce heat to medium and cook until browned (about 15 minutes total) and juices run clear. Remove pork chops to a plate and cover with foil.

Add onion to skillet and sauté until light brown (about 5 minutes) over medium heat. Add apple slices and sauté for 3 minutes. Turn heat up to medium high. Add white wine, apple juice concentrate, curry, and chicken broth, and any accumulated juices from the pork. Cook until apples can easily be pierced with the tip of a knife (about 4 minutes). Add cream (or sour cream) and cook rapidly for 3-4 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and can coat the back of a spoon. Taste for seasoning and add more curry if you want a stronger flavor. Turn heat down to medium, and return the pork chops and any accumulated juices to the pan. Heat back up for 1-2 minutes on each side and serve.

    Hey, Sal,
    Another great-sounding recipe I am eager to try. Question: I don’t know the differences in curries. There’s red, yellow, green, and now Madras? What is this? Where to get? How, when to use each? I adore curry, especially if it is not too sweet. I never know what to order, much less which to cook.
    Thanks
    Dee
