6 Pork chops
Pork chop fat or oil
2 ts Butter
salt and pepper to taste
3 Apples-unpeeled with cores
1 ts Sugar
Cook the chops using melted fat trimmed from the meat and 1 tsp butter.
Season to taste and set on hot platter. Keep warm.
(Note those concerned about their fat intake may chose to use corn oil or some other vegetable oil rather than the pork fat).
Slice the apples 1/2" thick and add to the pan with 1 tsp butter, the sugar and a few pinches of cinnamon or cloves.
Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, turning once or twice until some of apples are browned.
Arrange them around the chops and serve.
Recipe serves: 4-6
To quote Mme. Benoit, "The apples keep the chops moist and tender. I sometimes use 6 to 7 apples, then I use 1 Tablespoon sugar. Serve very hot."
