Here’s an easy-to-make dish that’s perfect when you’re cooking for two!
medium unpeeled cooking apple, sliced
tablespoons packed brown sugar
teaspoon ground cinnamon
bone-in pork rib chops, about 3/4 inch thick (about 1/4 pound each)
Heat oven to 350°F. Place apples in 1 1/2-quart rectangular casserole. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cover with foil; bake 15 minutes.
Trim fat from edge of pork. Spray 8- or 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes. Cook pork in hot skillet about 6 minutes, turning once, until light brown.
Place pork in single layer on apples. Cover and bake 10 to 12 minutes or until pork is no longer pink when cut near the bone, meat thermometer reads 145°F and apples are tender.
Follow cook times for pork carefully. Today’s pork is lean and requires shorter cooking times. Overcooking pork will make it tough.
Use a sharp knife to cut most of the fat from pork chops, being careful not to cut into the meat.
Serve hearty rye bread and pickled beets to complete an Oktoberfest menu.
