Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high. Add shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender about 5 minutes. Add apples, balsamic (or brandy/wine), sugar and thyme sprig, cover, and cook until apples are beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring, until most of the liquid has evaporated and apples are caramelized and tender, 2 to 4 minutes more. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
  • Season pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Add garlic, herbs and olive oil to a large zip lock bag. Add pork chops to bag, close letting out as much air as possible. Massage in bag to coat and marinate at least an hour.
  • Prepare grill for cooking. If using a charcoal grill, open vents on bottom of grill, then light charcoal. Charcoal fire is medium-hot when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill rack for 3 to 4 seconds. If using a gas grill, preheat burners on high, covered, 10 minutes, then reduce heat to moderate.
  • Grill pork chops, covered only if using a gas grill, turning over once, until thermometer inserted into center of a chop (do not touch bone) registers 145°F, 12 to 14 minutes total. Transfer chops to a plate and keep warm, loosely covered with foil.
  • To serve, spoon warm apple mixture over chops. Serve with arugula salad with blue cheese and/ or a roasted butternut squash puree would be great too!

    Luisa, I made this for dinner last night - what a fantastic flavor combination! I had some Calvados so I used that, and we decided that next time I make this I'm doubling the apples and shallots because we loved them so much. What a simple prep meal with an "I've been cooking all day" flavor...really delicious. I took pictures and uploaded them this morning - made me hungry for them again!!
    PS - Added it to the I Made It group...
