Pork with Dried Apples & Prosciutto Recipe

Makes: 2 servings

Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 thin-cut boneless pork loin chops, (8 ounces), trimmed of fat
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 thin slices prosciutto, (1 ounce), chopped
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 3/4 cup chopped dried apples
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided (see Tips for Two)
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage, or 1/4 teaspoon rubbed dried sage
  • 2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Preparation

  1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add prosciutto and cook, stirring constantly, until browned, about 1 minute. Transfer to the plate.
  2. Add cider, apples, 1/4 cup broth, vinegar and sage to the pan and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples have softened, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Stir together mustard, cornstarch and the remaining 1/4 cup broth in a small bowl. Add to the pan and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Return the pork and prosciutto to the pan and simmer, turning the pork to coat, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

Tips & Notes

  • Tips for Two: Leftover canned broth keeps up to 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in your freezer. Leftover broth in aseptic packages keep for up to 1 week in the refrigerator. Add to soups, sauces, stews; use for cooking rice and grains; add a little when reheating leftovers to prevent them from drying out.
