Maple-Mustard Pork Chops and Applesauce

These chops are so yummy and the mustard glaze gives them so much flavor. Really easy to cook and you can't screw them up either. Perfect for a weeknight dinner with homemade applesauce, yum!

(this picture is for lunch the next day and the applesauce was loooong gone:)


1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 spicy brown mustard
1/4 apple juice
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon cumin
6 boneless pork chops (1/2-3/4 inch thick)
olive oil
salt and pepper
3-4 apples
cinnamon and sugar

1. Heat a non stick skillet over medium heat.
2. Combine maple syrup, mustard,apple juice, allspice, and cumin in a small sauce pan and cook over medium heat until sauce begins to thicken.
3.Coat each chop in a light drizzle of olive oil and season both sides with salt and pepper. Place in pan and start to baste all the sides of the chops that are facing up. Cook for about 5 minutes and flip. Now baste the other side. Cook 5 minutes and flip again. Baste and cook 5 minutes and repeat this process for about 20 minutes or until your chops are cooked through. Baste the glaze again over chops before serving for a little extra sauce. Yum!

Really easy here. Cut your apples into cubes. Put in a medium size sauce pan and add a splash of apple juice. Put the lid on and let cook for about 5 minutes. Then add a couple tablespoons of sugar and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. Stir and cook until soft and sauce has formed.

*Serve applesauce with chops, steamed broccoli or carrots or a green salad. You are set!
* You could do these on the grill too in the summer!
