Pork Chops with Apples

10 minutes
Serves: 4

If you like a sweeter apple, us a Macintosh. If you like a tart taste, use Granny Smith. Apples are good sources of fiber. Serve with rice, and a steamed green vegtable or a crunchy green salad—or both?

If you would prefer, bake pork chops in a 350 degrees F oven for 25 minutes instead of cooking on top of range. Using a skillet is faster, but use vegetable oil!

Ingredients

  • 4 small apples
  • 4 pork chops, 1/2-inch thick, trimmed of all fat
  • vegetable oil spray
  • 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  1. Core apples and cut into quarters. Then cut each quarter into 3-4 slices.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. If non-stick skillet is not available, spray with vegetable spray. Place chops in the pan and brown on both sides for 3-5 minutes. Salt and pepper the pork chops (optional).
  3. Push pork chops to the center of the skillet. Place apples around chops. Drizzle oil over the top of apples. Cook for 5 minutes, shaking the pan from time to time and turning the apple slices over to brown both sides.
  4. Remove chops from pan to a serving plate; surround with the apples.

Achieve the goal of "eating a variety of foods" by eating the number of recommended servings in the Food Pyramid. How? Have each family member keep a list of foods eaten for 2 days. Everyone writes down each food, and the amount eaten throughout the day. Then, count up how many different foods from each food group were eaten each day. Compare to the Food Guide Pyramid.
