Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork chops
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour * use gluten free if needed
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 sweet apples * like gala, fuji, red delicious etc.
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/3 Cup brandy
  • 1 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon mustard powder

Instructions

  • Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
  • Dredge the pork chops in the flour until lightly coated.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
  • While the pork cooks, finely chop the shallot and dice the apple into bite-side pieces.
  • Add the apples and shallot to the pan with the pork and cook for a minute or two, stirring frequently.
  • Pour in the maple syrup, then the brandy. Be careful as the brandy may flame as the alcohol cooks off.

  • Serve the pork chops topped with apples and maple-brandy sauce.
