1½ tbsp olive oil
4 boneless pork chops
8 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
120ml apple juice
2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
Salt and black pepper
Knob of butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
- Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the pork chops for 3-4 minutes per side until browned.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the apple sauce, juice, mustard, salt and pepper.
- Transfer the chops to a plate, tent loosely with tin foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
- Melt a knob of butter in the same pan and add the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook for 5-6 minutes until soft and translucent, stirring occasionally and scraping any sticky bits from the bottom of the pan.
- Add the apple mixture to the pan and stir to coat the onions. Cook for 1-2 minutes to heat through.
- Return the chops to the pan and cook in the sauce for another 3-4 minutes or until cooked throughout.

Due to its heavy layers of fat, pork benefits most from robust flavours, such as thyme, apricot, mustard, pineapple, lemon, garlic, cream, mushrooms, beans, fennel and sage.
