We've set the desserts aside on this one and hit the main dish recipe hard with our Apple Pork Chops! After the pork loin is cooked and resting we add bacon and apple cider vinegar to the pan drippings to create the ultimate pork loin chop topping. It's subtly sweet and acidic with a fatty bacon and onion flavor to cut through the moist pork loin. Watch Matt chef up below!
What Is The Best Way TO Cook Pork Chops?
In our opinion, any meat is best cooked by searing it on the stove top and then finished off in the oven so that the meat remains tender and moist. We use that exact method to cook these chops, and trust us you don't wont to do it any other way. Achieving a crispy sear to the outside of any meat, be it chicken thighs, steak or pork loin chops is pretty essential to ensuring it's delicious. And, by finishing it off in the oven you can be sure that the meat is fully cooked through and to your liking!
This Is The Best Pork Chop Recipe!
If we're being honest, when Matt tried this recipe the first time he totally winged the pan drippings sauce to top the meat. The original plan was a red wine reduction, but that quickly changed to apple cider vinegar, bacon and cinnamon. The first bite of the drippings and meat was indescribably good! My eyes widened, all my senses were awakened and I instantly felt nostalgia for the fall season. The combination of sweet cinnamon and acidic apple cider vinegar pairs perfectly with the mellow taste of pork loin. It's truly unbeatable!
Pan Seared Apple Pork Chops
Our favorite way to cook meat, as mentioned above, is pan seared and then finished off in the oven, so you can imagine we have more recipes cooked in a similar fashion. This recipe is definitely Matt's favorite, while mine is our crispy chicken thighs - I could honestly eat them everyday! However, with fall almost in full bloom, or honestly, any time of year, we would definitely recommend you give our apple pork chops a try to enjoy fall time in food form!
