Rosemary Chops with Chunky Applesauce

If you happen to have any apples sort of languishing about in a refrigerator drawer, I have a recipe for you. I had about 6 sort of “past their prime” Macintosh apples and I decided that they would pair well with the loin pork chops I had defrosted. Honestly, this chunky applesauce is like crack—it's good!

4 loin chops
salt and pepper
2 T fresh rosemary chopped
6 Macintosh apples or whatever you have, peeled and chopped
½ red onion chopped
olive oil
2 T balsamic vinegar
6 T water

Sauté onion in olive oil for about 3 minutes or so, then throw in the apples, vinegar and water and simmer for ten minutes until apples are tender. Remove from heat. In the meantime, put the salt and pepper and fresh rosemary on the chops. Sauté the chops 3 minutes per side.

I served this with a frozen vegetable from Trader Joe's called Country Potatoes with Haricots Verts and it is a great side—so easy!
