When it comes to easy lunch or dinner meals, it’s hard to go wrong with pork chops. Pork chops are juicy and with the right method, has some amazing crackling. Our Appletizer pork chops are full of amazing flavours with an unconventional twist. Just like eisbein, pork chops do very well with apple flavours and our Appletizer addition adds some of that taste and makes an amazing sauce with white wine.

Appletizer pork chops tips

When the chops are in the oven, keep it covered so that you don’t lose too much liquid. Open it up and roast the chops for more colour in a hotter oven while making your sauce. You can start the sauce by browning some onions, adding flour and butter with some stock. When opening the pork chops, just add the fat and reduce the sauce until its thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Serve with some asparagus or green salad.
