Ingredients

  • 4 Pork Chops Boneless, kind of thick
  • 1 Apple Sweet
  • 3 Shallots
  • ¼ cup White Wine cooking wine is fine
  • 5 Tbsp Coconut Oil divided
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Sprinkle cinnamon, salt, and pepper on both sides of the pork chops. Rub the seasoning into the pork chops. Set aside.
  • Cut the apple in half and then thinly slice it (like really, really thin).
  • Thinly slice the shallots as well.
  • Heat 4 Tbsp of the coconut oil in a large skillet over Medium heat and add the apples and shallots. Saute for 5 minutes or until the apples are tender but still a little crisp.
  • Remove the apples and shallots from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the last tbsp of coconut oil to the skillet.
  • Place the pork chops in the skillet and do not move. Sear the chops for about 2 minutes on each side.
  • If you have a gas stove, turn the flame up to high and add the white wine.
  • Tilt your pan towards the flame and let the wine catch on fire (this may or may not work, depending on the alcohol content of your wine)
  • If your wine won’t catch fire, or you have an electric stove, just bring the wine to a boil to cook off the alcohol.
  • Add the apple and shallot mixture back to the pan, cover and cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes (depending on the thickness of your pork chops, it might need more or less time).
  • Serve the pork chops with the apple/onion mixture piled on top and marvel at your ranch-dressing-less pork chops.
