Video: Curried Pork Chops With Apples Recipe


Are you stuck in a dinnertime rut? Churning out the same few meals week after week? While there is something comforting (and efficient) about those tried and true recipes, it's also good to mix things up every now and then. This flavorful fall dish will certainly liven up your dinner repertoire, and it's ready in about 30 minutes.

The warmth of the curry meets the sweetness of the apples and comes together over lean pork chops. We paired it all with whole-grain brown rice and topped it with chopped peanuts, which add texture and a little nutty flavor to this healthy weeknight meal.

Yield: 4 servings

(Downloadable/printable pdf of this recipe)


4 (4-ounce) lean pork chops
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
1 Tablespoon canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon curry powder
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and chopped
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 cup reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth
3 Tablespoons chili sauce
3 Tablespoons apricot preserves
2 cups cooked brown rice, hot
2 Tablespoons peanuts, chopped


Trim excess fat from pork. Combine salt and black pepper in a small cup and rub surface of pork with salt and pepper mixture. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Transfer pork chops to a plate and keep warm.

Add onions to skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Stir in curry powder and cook 1 minute. Add apple, raisins, broth, chili sauce and apricot preserves. Stir to combine and bring to a boil.

Return pork chops to skillet. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook 10 to 12 minutes or until done (pork should reach an internal temperature of 145ºF).

Remove from heat and serve over rice; sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
