Ingredients
Savory Baked Apples Ingredients:
  • 3 small apples (I used a local variety of Jonagold)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • a pinch of ground cayenne, optional
  • 1 tbsp. ghee (clarified butter) or 1 tbsp. olive oil
Pork Chop Ingredients:
  • bone-in pork chops, I make 2 per person
  • small jar of creamy horseradish (sometimes called prepared horseradish)
  • salt, to taste
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • olive oil to lightly coat
Instructions
Savory Baked Apples Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 200C or 392F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then set a side. Core the apples and cut into even sized wedges. In a small bowl mix all of the spices. In another coat apple wedges with the ghee or oil. Gently toss the apples and spice mixture until wedges are well coated. Spread the apple wedges on baking sheet place in center of the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until tender.
Pork Chops Instructions:
  1. Preheat broiler for 10 minutes. Pat dry the pork chops and brush with a little bit of oil. Rub the chops with a little bit of salt and black pepper on both sides. Place the pork chops directly on oven rack/broiler rack closest to heat. Cook for 8 minutes or until brown then flip and continue cooking for another 8 minutes, or until cooked through. Cooking time depends on chop's thickness so keep a close eye on them and check for doneness.
  2. Pour some prepared horseradish onto a small bowl. Use a spoon to spread a thick layer of horseradish ontop of each pork chop. Place the coated pork chops back on the broiler and cook until the horseradish is dark and charred. Check on them often to prevent smoking and burning.
Serve:
  1. Serve the horseradish pork chops with savory baked apples and your favorite green vegetable or salad.
