Fruit Baked Pork Chops

I love the combo of pork and fruit. Or fish and fruit. Yeah, basically I just like cooking with fruit.┬áThis one you can just shove all in one pan and forget about it until it’s time to eat! Couldn’t be easier and is very tender and delicious. Also a great way to use up apples that have been hanging around for too long.

Ingredients

  • 2 nice fat pork chops.
  • 1 cup fruit juice (I used mango but apple or orange would be great)
  • 2 small sprigs of rosemary
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 large apple
  • 1 clove of garlic minced

Preparation

Slice the apple into 4 thick wheels- I usually just remove the seeds but don’t core them as the center star looks damn fine on a plate! Pour the juice in your baking dish and lay down 2 of the apple slices. Place a chop on each slice, sprinkle with salt and pepper and minced garlic. Put a sprig of rosemary on each pork chop and cover with remaining apple slices. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes and use the top apple slice as a garnish for serving.
