Pork Chops With Apples and Oranges

October 2, 2013

In Autumn there is nothing nicer than a warm casserole based dish for dinner. There is something comforting about eating a warm meal with mash and vegetables while the wind blows round the house outside. A meal bursting with flavour takes the edge off a grey day and adds a splash of colour.
Recently we managed to find quite a lot of apples and I have been looking for recipes to use them. I made an apple and blackberry strudel which was lovely.  I wanted to try and make something more savoury. My mum makes a lovely dish using pork chops, apples and oranges but sadly I do not have the recipe. I decided to try and recreate it.

Pork With Apples and OrangesThe result was full of flavour, you could taste the burst of apple and orange while worked fabulously with the pork. I think if I tried this again I would add some flour to make a slightly thicker sauce with a gravy consistency. The sauce has a lovely orange tang and when mixed with mashed potatoes takes them to a different level.
