Pork with onions and apples is a heavenly combination, which is proven by this delicious recipe. I recommend each bite contain a bit of apple, a bit of onion, and a bit of pork loin, because the flavors go so well together. Not to mention, this recipe is simple.
Total cooking and prep time: 30 min
1KG Pork Loin, sliced into 3/4 inch thick slices
2 granny smith apples, peeled and cut into thin slices
1 sliced red onion
lots of fresh thyme, about 10 twigs
3 tbsp butter – you could use margarine, but its much better with butter
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp olive oil
Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Add both pork loins, and briefly brown all sides. Remove from pan and leave them on a plate. Add butter to the same frying pan, and once it is melted, add sliced onions. Turn heat down to low, and sautee onions until clear. Add chopped apple, and continue to sautee, for another 5 min. Next, add the pork loins to the pan, as well as the apple cider and fresh thyme. Turn up heat, and cook until liquid comes to a boil. Then turn down the heat, and simmer until apples are soft, usually about 5 more minutes. If there is still lots of liquid, mix cornstarch with some 2 tbsp cold water to make a starch. Add to frying pan, and simmer until sauce thickens. Turn off heat, and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove from frying pan, serve pork loins with sauce, apples and onions on top. This plate is best served with rice, though it also goes great with new potatoes, and any kind of veggie.
