How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat the olive oil and the first tbsp of butter in a large heavy bottomed skillet and saute the pork chops on each side about 3 minutes each side.
  • Transfer to a glass baking dish.
  • Add wine to the skillet, scrape to deglaze the bottom of the pan and get all the goodies off the bottom, add the shallots, broth and mustard, stir well and cook until shallots are soft and liquid is reduced by 1/2.
  • Pour over the chops, cover tightly with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  • In the same skillet, melt the remaining tbsp of butter and add the sliced Granny Smith apples. Cook until these are soft about five minutes over medium high heat.
  • Remove from heat, add the Calvados.
  • Return to heat and stir in the currant jelly and cook until a glaze forms.
  • Spoon the apples over the chops and bake another five minutes uncovered.

    Krum, honey, I'm glad you enjoyed the pork chops Normandy. I love the flavors together....If I had read your note before I put together the white beans and smoked pork in the crock pot, I would have changed my dinner plans. (The sous-chef at Rollande et Pierre was always asking the bartender for a little more Calvados for the pot....we think he meant his "pot-belly" not the pork pot!!!) Yep, I cook with wine too, and sometimes some of it will make it into the actual dish. Too bad, I can't find a cabana boy around when I need one to help decorate the house this year. Where are they when you need them????

    notcho, I made your Normandy Pork for dinner tonight - excellent! Even though this head cold prevented me from enjoying all the flavors completely, I could taste enough to know this was a keeper. We purchased some calvados while we were in the Normandy area of France a couple years back. I ate a pork shank in calvdos one evening, and I was SOLD! I will be using the rest of the bottle on this's a "repeater"...enjoy!

    Yum.... I'll bet you could use applesauce in a pinch there if were no apples available (no problem for us - we have two apple trees)!

    Love this recipe - thanks - it's bookmarked and will have it next week! And do it in the crock pot.
