OCTOBER 2011 PG 52

Seared Pork Chops with Apples and Leeks
2 tsp olive oil
4 40z boneless pork loin chops
1/4 tsp each sea salt and pepper
2 leeks, rinsed and well hopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp dried thyme
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
2 apples ( McIntosh, Fuji or Gala) cored and diced
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary

In a large skillet, heat oil on medium high. Season both sides of pork with salt and pepper and place in the skillet; cook for 1-2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Add leeks and garlic to skillet and cook for 2 minutes on medium high heat, until soft. Add thyme and cook for 1 minute, until thyme is fragrant. Stir in broth, apples and rosemary and bring to a simmer. Return chops to pan, partially cover and cook for 3-5 minutes, undisturbed until chops are tender.

Total time: 20 minutes
