Pork Chops and Balsamic Sauteed Apples

Challenger Brandi offers her take on cooked fruit. We’ve seen a few variations on pineapple, but this time it’s apples. Sounds like a simple dinner with a lot of satisfying flavor.

Pork Chops and Balsamic Sauteed Apples

I was so excited when I saw Chef Devin’s mini challenge to cook with fruit. I love cooked fruit and you’ll rarely see me turn up my nose at it. So tonight we embraced the warming spring weather and threw pork chops on the grill. I do nothing more than salt and pepper these.

Then I sautee the apples. I thinly slice a Fuji apple while a drizzle of olive oil heats in the pan. Then toss the apples in and let cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Next I throw a generous splash of balsamic vinegar and let the apples cook until they are soft.

Tonight I had half a yellow squash left from a previous meal, so I cut thick slices and sauteed for about 5 minutes in olive oil, pepper and salt. Not too soft and still a little crunch.

I topped the pork chops with the apples, served the squash and added a handful of spinach leaves with vinaigrette… and we had dinner! The plates were empty. The whole prep took less than half an hour.
