Caramel Apple Pork Chops
January 29, 2009

My husband said “This is worth 10 stars and how many times have you heard me say that?” The answer is Never. My picky 16 y.o. took one bite and said “This is the best thing I have ever eaten.” Her friend said she didn’t like pork but would eat the rest of my meal. I told her she had to have one bite. She ended up eating a whole chop and said “My mom’s pork chops never taste like this.” I did Brine my chops for 12 hours in 1qt apple juice, ¼ cup kosher salt, and ¼ cup brown sugar. I *always* do this - it truly makes all the difference if you want moist chops. Followed other reviewers - tripled the sauce and added a shot of Bourbon (YumO!!!). I used an apple slicer (8 pieces per apple) and I used 4 apples for 4 1 1/2 thick chops. I browned the seasoned chops on both sides, placed them in a casserole dish, poured the apple/sauce mixture on top and baked them at 425 for 20 minutes (internal temp 160). I served these with a brown rice pilaf and roasted broccoli.
