20190125_173358.jpg

I found these great recipes on the Chunky Chef and make a few changes and wow, this was such a satisfying meal for a chilly winter day!

GROCERY LIST FOR BOTH DISHES

4-5 Pork loins

2 medium apples

1 white onion

2 cartons of mushrooms (whatever kind you prefer)

Garlic (already peeled or peel your own, you just need 6 cloves)

Dijon mustard

salt and pepper

Italian seasoning

stick of butter olive oil

INGREDIENTS FOR PORK APPLE AND ONIONS

  • 4 Tbsp olive oil 

  • Four 3-4 oz bone-in pork loins 

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 3/4 cup chicken stock

  • 1 TBS Dijon mustard or whole-grain Dijon

  • 1 TBS Italian seasoning

  • 2 medium apples thinly sliced (I used honey crisp)

  • 1/2 white onion, thinly sliced.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Season both sides of pork chops with salt and black pepper. Add 2 Tbsp olive oil to large heavy bottomed pan (or skillet), and heat over MED-HIGH heat. Add pork chops to pan, leaving at least an inch between the chops to ensure even cooking and browning. Sear 3-5 minutes per side, or until pork chops are mostly done. Chops will continue cooking in the sauce later.

  2. Remove pork chops to a plate.

  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together chicken stock and mustard, set aside.

  4. Add remaining 2 Tbsp oil to the pan, then add apples and onions. Cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt, pepper and the Italian seasoning. Stir to combine.

  5. Pour in stock mixture.

  6. Slide pork chops back into the pan, nestling them down in between the apples.

  7. Cook 2-3 minutes, until pork chops are finished cooking and liquid has reduced by half.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Clean mushrooms thoroughly, then slice if you prefer not to serve them whole and place in a medium sauce pan with 1/2 stick butter on medium heat.

    2. Once the butter has melted, pour the ranch dressing mix over the mushrooms.  Stir to coat.

    3. Cover and cook on LOW for about 10 minutes.  Make sure to give them a stir every couple of minutes to make sure they cook evenly. Check for desired tenderness, and cook a little longer if needed.
