Pork Chops and Applesauce – for a cause!

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a nice relaxing weekend! I just wanted to let you know that the wonderful people at Musselman’s, maker’s of some very delicious applesauce, has joined with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), in their mission to promote breast cancer awareness!

For every package of applesauce purchased in the month of January, Musselman’s will donate ten cents to the NBCF! The NBCF is dedicated to raising awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need. So be on the lookout for the Musselman’s Applesauce with the pink packaging, and do your part to help support breast cancer awareness! For more information, you can also watch this great video of Peggy Fleming talking about talking about her experience with breast cancer, as well as sharing details about what Musselman’s is doing to support this cause!

Also, the wonderful Krista at Musselman’s was kind enough to send me some of their delicous applesauce, as well as some recipes to try too! Here’s a great recipe that you can make to not only feed your hunger, but can also help those affected by breast cancer too!

Craig’s Apple Pork Chops


Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops (1/2 inch thick)
  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 c chopped onion
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups MUSSELMAN’S Natural Apple Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions

Lightly flour, salt and pepper both sides of the pork chops. In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown pork chops in oil on both sides. Remove chops to a plate, leaving any remaining oil in the skillet. Add onion, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper to the skillet to quickly brown 1 minute. Remove from heat, add the apple sauce and cinnamon and stir together. Add pork chops back to the pan and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until center temp is 155 to 165 degrees.

Makes 4 servings

I served to my family with some oven roasted potatoes and carrots, and a simple side salad and hit was a hit! This was the perfect, feel good, comforting meal on a cold night! It really hit this spot! It can also be made with boneless chicken breasts, if you are like me, who doesn’t like to eat red meats! My family RAVED about this! Everyone absolutely loved it! The pork (and chicken) got so moist, tender, and was super flavorful from being cooked right in the applesauce! This will meal will definitely be repeated soon!
