Ingredients

For Pork Chops

  • 8 boneless pork loin chops, about 3 ounces each
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • sprinkle of Celtic/Himalayan sea salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp pasturized butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For Applesauce

  • 3 lbs assorted apples - the sweeter the better
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

For Applesauce

  • Chop apples into large same-sized pieces (keep peels on)
  • Add the apples and water to a large stock pot that is large enough to hold all of the fruit with room to spare, as the apples will expand as they cook. Cover pot with lid.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the apples are soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool enough to handle.
  • Dump into a food processor (or Beabo Baby Cook or use hand/immersion blender) and puree apples.

For Pork Chops

  • Mix rosemary, garlic and salt and pepper in tiny bowl.
  • Rub the pork chops with the this mixture.
  • Melt butter and oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Sear the pork chops until browned, about 2 minutes per side.
  • Lower the temperature to medium-low; cover and continue to cook until the pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145 F, another 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove the chops from the skillet and serve with applesauce.
