This dish is super tasty and for how fancy it looks, it's super easy too. Pork and apple are a match made in heaven and when you add maple to the equation, you've got a really special dish going on. Give this recipe a go - serving with buttery mash and seasoned green beans is a must. Enjoy!
In a bowl, lightly whisk together your maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce until the mustard dissolves. Put to one side.
Rub the both sides of the pork chops in rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Heat up a tablespoon or so of olive oil in a deep pan and start cooking your pork on a medium heat. Cook until browned on the outside and white throughout, about 6 to 8 minutes each side depending on thickness). Add in your onion and garlic and fry for a further 2 minutes until the onions begin to brown and soften. Drain away if too much moisture collects in the pan.
At this point add in maple mixture and apple slices. Give everything a good coating and reduce to a simmer until the sauce thickens and the apple slices soften, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve on a bed of heavily seasoned buttery mash, next to some steamed green beans.
