Pork Chops, Apples, and Greens

Pork chops and applesauce get an upgrade in this elegant dish featuring apples and baby spinach tossed in a spicy honey mustard sauce. Try combining different varieties of apples for flavor that is truly dynamic. Sweet Fuji apples blend beautifully with tart, crisp Cortlands or bright, tangy Granny Smith.

Pork Chops, Apples, and Greens

Directions

  1. Place each chop between waxed paper or plastic wrap. With the flat side of a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound pork to 1/2-inch thickness.
  2. In a food processor process bread to crumbs; place in a shallow dish. In a second shallow dish lightly beat the egg with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Dip pork into egg and then bread crumbs to coat.
  3. In a 12-inch skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork to skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side until golden on the outside and an instant-read thermometer inserted in pork registers 145 degrees F. Transfer chops to a platter; cover to keep warm.
  4. Stir honey, mustard, and vinegar into skillet drippings. Add apple slices; cook about 3 minutes until crisp-tender. Add spinach; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Toss until just wilted.
  5. Serve chops with apples and spinach. Drizzle with pan juices and sprinkle with pepper.

Made this tonight. I'd make it again, but I would double the spinach and halve the apples. I also ended up nuking the apples and sauce to soften the apples. There's something off about the sauce to me, but I can't put my tongue on it. I would change something, but others would likely find it just fine!
