Pork Chops with ApplesSubmitted by: MOMOF2NJ
Introductionfrom the Why French Women Don't Get Fat cookbook from the Why French Women Don't Get Fat cookbook
4 medium pork chops (you can substitute veal chops if you prefer)
4 whole cloves
1/2 cup dry white wine or vermouth
4 celery leaves
2 bay leaves
4 celery stalks, washed and finely diced
1 tablespoon butter
2 apples, cored and coarsely sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
4 ounces Swiss or Jarlsberg cheese, coarsely grated
Press a clove into each chop. Add the white wine, celery leaves, and bay leaves and put the pan in the preheated oven. Bake the chops for 30 minutes.
While the pork chops are baking, in a frying pan sauté the diced celery in the butter or 5 minutes, and then add the sliced apples and sprinkle with the brown sugar. Continue cooking over very low heat for 10 minutes, or until the apples are tender but not mushy.
Finish the pork chops by removing the bay and celery leaves and sprinkling the cheese over the top of each chop; baste and then broil for a few minutes to brown the top.
Serve with apples on the side.
