As I mentioned earlier this week, I am participating in a recipe challenge through Costco for National Pork Month. I (along with 47 other bloggers) was given a cut of meat (boneless chops or roast) and a theme (everyday dinners) and told to get cookin’.
If you know me at all, that’s a bit scary. I don’t do a lot from scratch. I use recipes….I don’t generally create them.
So first thing I did was hit up Costco for some pork chops. Then I asked my brother in law his favorite, most basic way to cook them (he’s a chef so yes I feel like I cheated a little). His suggestion: olive oil, kosher salt, pepper then throw ’em on the grill.
But I needed something more than that. I needed to fancy it up a little.
So being that it’s fall, I decided to do something with apples. I used to have pork chops and applesauce A LOT as a kid, so I figured it was a good combo.
My brother in law suggested some sort of apples and brandy sauce but I wasn’t that brave (plus I wasn’t sure the kid would like it.)
