Spiced Pork and Apples

Makes: 4 servings
Prep 25 mins Marinate 4 hrs Bake 425°F 20 mins
Spiced Pork and Apples
  • 4  inches  thin-cut boneless pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick; 1-1/4 pounds total)
  • 1/4  cup  peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/4  cup  honey or packed brown sugar
  • 1/4  cup  reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2  tablespoons  rice wine or sherry
  • 1  teaspoon  toasted sesame oil
  • 1  teaspoon  five-spice powder
  • 1 2  inch piece  fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2  large baking apples (such as Cortland, Pippin, Rome Beauty, or Winesap), cored and cut into thick slices
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground cinnamon or five-spice powder
  • 4  green onions, diagonally sliced into 2-inch pieces
  • 1  tablespoon  honey

1. Place pork chops in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish; set aside. For marinade, in a small bowl combine peanut oil, honey, soy sauce, rice wine, sesame oil, five-spice powder, and ginger. Pour marinade over pork chops. Seal bag; turn to coat chops. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 12 hours, turning occasionally.

2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Drain chops, reserving 1/4 cup marinade. Arrange chops in an ungreased 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Arrange apples around chops. Drizzle apples with the reserved 1/4 cup marinade. Sprinkle apples with cinnamon.

3. Bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Add green onions. Bake, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes more or until chops are cooked through (160 degrees F) and apples are tender. Arrange chops and apples on a serving platter. Drizzle apples with honey.
