Yeah, that’s right. I said pork chops with apple gravy.
I had never heard of such a thing either, but I saw something like this in a Taste of Home cookbook and needed to try it immediately. I already love pork chops with gravy, and pork chops with apple. How could I resist combining those two favorite dishes into one?
The original recipe called for heaving whipping cream, which is what I used, but it was very rich. That’s not a bad thing, but I made a note in the recipe that you could lighten it up a bit with half and half and still have a deliciously creamy sauce.
Despite the apple juice in this recipe, the gravy isn’t actually very sweet. It is gorgeous, velvety, and a little fruity. I know I’m not talking much about the lovely, juicy pork chops here, but honestly the pork was mainly the car driving apple gravy into my mouth. I hope you have a chance to try this recipe this week. Please come back to let me know you like it when you do!Print
Sprinkle poultry seasoning, 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, and black pepper evenly over both sides of the pork chops.
Heat butter in a skillet over medium-high heat until melted. Add pork chops, and cook approximately 6 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove to a plate, and cover with foil to keep warm.
Reduce heat to medium, and add apple juice and vinegar. Bring to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes to reduce slightly.
Meanwhile, stir cornstarch and cream together with a fork, and pour into skillet with apple juice. Add a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Return to simmer and cook until thickened, about 3 minutes.
Serve pork chops topped with apple gravy and sprinkled with parsley if desired.
