Pork Chops with Warm Apples

Pork chops and apples with Grand Marnier are a wonderful combination. A hint of fresh rosemary makes it perfect.


Warm Apples:

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil

4 Gala apples, peeled, cored and cut into thick slices

1/4 cup Grand Marnier or orange juice

1 cup chicken broth


salt and pepper to taste

3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


4 (1 1/4-inch thick) pork chops

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped

Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Heat butter and oil in a large skillet. Add apples and cook over a medium heat until tender, about 10 minutes. Add Grand Marnier and bring to a boil. Stir in chicken broth and honey. Simmer about 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Keep warm while pork chops cook.
Brush olive oil over chops. Sprinkle with rosemary. Broil 6 inches from heat, 6 minutes per side, or until meat is no longer pink inside. Serve topped with warm apples, garnished with chopped parsley.
