The weather is finally cooling off here in Ohio. This is a delicious autumn meal for the famiIy!
I went to the grocery store and bought a family package of mixed pork chops. There was about three pounds of pork chops for less than six dollars. We had just picked apples, and I thought, well this will be delicious together! Here is my recipe.
Pan Fried Pork Chops with Apples:
Mixed Pork Chops about three pounds
1 cup all purpose King Arthur flour
1 teaspoon celery salt- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed, and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt pounded together in mortar and pestle
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme
a small bunch of fresh sage
1 cooking apple cored and sliced
2 onions chopped
1/2 cup butter, lard, or refined coconut oil
1 cup white wine
2 cups chicken stock
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a large plate add the flour, along with all the dry spices and salt and pepper. Dredge your pork chops in the seasoned flour and set a side. Take a heavy bottomed skillet and add half of the fat, melt it and get it very hot, add the pork chops, and fry until golden. Set them aside, and add the rest of the fat and melt it. Add the onions and apples, saute until softened. Add salt and pepper if needed. Now add the chopped fresh sage, saute, and then deglaze the pan with the white wine. Add the stock. Replace the pork chops back into the pan with the sauce. Place the lid on the pan and put it in the oven for an hour.
Serve with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes.
