Gluten Free Pork Chops with Apples & Tomatoes
Short on time, too hot to light the oven? This Pork Chop with Apples & Tomatoes is quick, easy and flavorful! Serve over rice and you’re all set. Salad is a quick fix too, so let’s get going with the main dish!
These ingredients are for 2 Chops, so if you’re cooking for more people, then do the math and double up, or triple if need be. I’ve added a photo of one chop in a pan as it was cooking to help visualize your steps, but truly, you’ll see this is easy and quick. Perhaps, ½ hour from start to serve. I’d say that was fast!
2 Pork Chops
2 tbls Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Dash of Salt & Pepper
1 Fresh Tomato, Sliced into about 6 crescents. Don’t slice as for a sandwich, but from stem to top into crescents.
1 Tart Apple such as Granny Smith, Braeburn, etc.
½ teas. Lime Juice
2 Scallions, Slice only the 3 inches at the bulb end. (Not the greener end)
Dash of Nutmeg
1/8 teas Ground Ginger or just a dash. We’re not relying on too much, just a dash
½ cup G-Free Chicken Broth
1 tbls Brown Sugar. I used Light Brown Sugar.
Rice of choice. I used a white rice, but brown or jasmine will do fine as well.
First, cook the rice. While it’s being prepared, we’ll make the meat.
Next, get all of the ingredients out in front of you. It goes quickly, so you’ll be all set.
Slice up the tomato, apple, scallion.
Heat the EVOO in a pan and give a dash of Salt & Pepper to the 2 sides of each Chop. Place in the hot oil and brown lightly on both sides. We aren’t cooking them thru here, just a browning for color.
Remove to a plate.
In that same oil, saute the scallions till translucent. Then add the sliced apple and tomato at the same time. Saute for about 2 minutes, then add the broth, nutmeg, ginger and another dash of Salt & Pepper.
Add the Brown Sugar.
Stir well to combine all.
Place the Chops back in that mixture. Cover tightly and simmer on low-to-medium heat for only about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the hot burner and let sit with cover for a few minutes.
While this was going, you should have put up the rice, and if timed right, we’re all done at the same time.
Serve over that rice of choice and perhaps a green salad or some fresh corn.
No need to heat the kitchen with the oven…we’re all set in no time!
