Paleo Pork Chops & Apples

Here’s another recipe that I thought we be good to share. We make this one pretty often and it’s delicious! As soon as I make it again, I will update with a picture, but for now, here it is:

What you need:

  • 2 bone-in pork chops (from a farmer’s market if possible)
  • 2 green apples (diced or wedged)
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • Butter (pastured if possible)
  • Coconut oil
  • Chicken stock
  • Salt, pepper, thyme
  • Dutch oven or heavy pot
  • Tongs
  • Wooden spoon
  • Potato masher

How you do it:

  1. Get your pan going over medium heat. Let it heat for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add in some butter and some coconut oil.
  3. Season the pork chops (both sides, please) with salt and pepper.
  4. Brown each pork chop (again, both sides, please). It will take 2-4 minutes depending on your pot. Once they are both browned, set them aside.
  5. Add some more butter and coconut oil.
  6. Add onions. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme.
  7. Cook until the onions are translucent and start to brown.
  8. Add in the apples. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the apples start to brown.
  9. Add enough chicken stock to just come up to the top of the apples/onions.
  10. Add the pork chops back in. Cover and reduce heat.
  11. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
  12. Remove pork chops.
  13. Mash up the apples. You can cook them a little longer if there’s still too much liquid.

Near the end, you have a few options with the mashed up apple sauce. You can add some heavy cream if you like, leave it just as it is, or add anything else that you think might make it delicious.
