Pork Chops with Cider Sauce

Recipe from Barbara Collins

Difficulty easy
Preparation Time 2 minutes
Cooking Time 10 minutes
Servings 2
Main Ingredients
  • 2 pork loin chops (preferably free range with the bone)
  • 2 tbsp olive/rapeseed oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Knob of butter
  • 1 eating apple- cored and cut into wedges
  • 4 fresh sage leaves- chopped
  • 100ml (4 fl oz) cider
  • 2 tbsp double cream

Main Instructions
  1. Rub half of the oil into the chops and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Heat the remaining oil and butter in the frying pan over a medium heat.
  3. Place the chops in the pan along with the wedges of apple and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until golden-brown underneath.
  4. Turn the chops and apple wedges over and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add the sage leaves, fry for another 1-2 minutes, then increase the heat to high.
  6. Pour in the cider and boil for a minute or two to reduce slightly, then pour in the cream and boil for one more minute, or until the sauce thickens slightly and the pork is cooked through.
  7. Set aside to rest for a few minutes before serving with mashed potato and a green vegetable- obviously cider is the thing to drink with this!
