Pulled this recipe out of my "New Good Housekeeping Cookbook": Herb-Coated Pork Chops with Apple and Onion Saute.


Breaded Pork Chops


1/3c plain bread crumbs (I subbed almond meal)

1/4t Salt

1/4t Pepper

1/4t dried thyme

1 large egg

4 bone-in pork chops (i just had boneless thick cut chops)


* combine almond meal, salt, pepper and thyme.

* dip chops in beaten egg, then dredge in dry mixture

* Cook under broiled 4-6 minutes per side, or until cooked


Apple and Onion Saute


2t olive oil

2 medium onions, sliced

2 granny smith apples; cored and wedged

2t light brown sugar (i actually used regular white sugar, but you could even leave it out, because of the apples themselves are pretty sweet)

1/4t salt

1/4t pepper

1/4t dried thyme

1/4c water

2t cider vinegar


* heat oil and onions in saute pan, until lightly browned

* add apples, brown sugar, salt, pepper, thyme

* continue cooking and stirring until apples and onions are tender.

* stir in water and cider vinegar

* spoon over pork chops to serve


The almond meal kinda worked as a substitute for bread crumbs. You could also grill the pork chops for a different texture, but pan-frying with an almond meal crust doesn't work out too well.
