Pork Chops With Apples and Garlic Smashed Potatoes

Recipe courtesy Food Network Magazine


Prep Time:10 minInactive Prep Time: -- Cook Time:30 min

Level:

Easy

Serves:

4 servings


Ingredients

1 pound small fingerling potatoes

2 cloves garlic

Kosher salt

4 1/2-inch-thick boneless pork loin chops (5 ounces each)

2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage

Freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 large red onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges

2 Granny Smith apples, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

3/4 cup apple cider

1/4 cup buttermilk

Directions

Put the potatoes and garlic in a saucepan, cover with cold water and season with salt. Cover and bring to a boil, then uncover and continue cooking until tender, about 15 minutes. Cover and set aside.


Meanwhile, rub both sides of the pork chops with the sage, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat, then add 1 teaspoon olive oil and sear the chops until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the skillet and add the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil. Add the onion and apples and cook over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the cider.


Return the chops to the skillet. Cover and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes, reserving 1/4 cup liquid. Return the potatoes to the pan; add the buttermilk and mash, adding cooking liquid as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with the pork chops, onion and apples. Drizzle with the pan juices.

 I love that you put the name of the recipe in the title. That way when I'm browsing later, it's so easy to know if I've already looked at the post or not. and also easy to find when I want to try it.
