Apple Pork Chops

I have been in the apple spirit this week. Applesauce and pork chops is a dish that I grew up on, and wanted to reinvent the pork and apple flavor in a new dish. I spotted some delicious apple cider at the supermarket, and decided it would be a wonderful marinate for savory pork chops. I love the combination of celery and apples, so I added the celery seeds to the marinade. This marinade makes a delicious sweet and savory sauce perfect for the fall season.

Combine all marinade ingredients in a shallow baking dish or gallon size Ziploc bag. Add pork chops and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours, or overnight.

Preheat broiler, grill, or grill pan. Broil or grill chops until browned.

Preheat small skillet or sauce pan. Add olive oil. Whisk in flour. Cook flour until blond and fragrant. Whisk in reserved marinade. Bring to a boil, and simmer until chops are done.
