Viennese Pork Chops with Sherry and Apples

Category: Pork
Difficulty Rating: Easy
Not Really Healthy But Could Be Worse

Do rainy days and Mondays always get you down? Don't cry, boo-boo! Make some comfort food! Carmelized onions, sizzling brown pork in a sultry sweet sauce made with apples and sherry... baby! Another go-to recipe, this is one of my oldest--from the seventies. Have it on a cold night when you just want REAL FOOD quick and easy!

(The real trick is getting your hubby to do the dishes. Now that is my idea of comfort)


4-6 pork chops (cut about 1-inch thick)
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
4 apples, peeled cored and quartered
12 small boiling onions OR 1 medium onion, peeled, sliced, and sauteed in 2 T butter
1/4 C raisins
1/2 C sherry
1/2 C water
3 T brown sugar or Palm sugar or 1 T maple syrup
1/4 t nutmeg
dash of thyme


Brown 6 pork chops (cut about 1 inch thick or more) in a skillet for about 5 minutes on each side till browned. Pour off drippings. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange the chops in a lightly greased baking dish (9X13 glass pan or a dutch oven is fine) and cover with apples, onions and raisins. Add sherry, water, brown sugar, nutmeg and thyme. Cover and bake in 375 degree oven 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes. Serves 4-6.
