This is a great healthy pork recipe, which can be made in 30 minutes and is tasty and filling. I think the original recipe was in one of the sunday newspapers, but my mum has it written down in one of her notebooks so I have no idea who's recipe it was originally. But this is our take on it!
4 Pork Chops
6 Shallots, peeled and sliced
25g Unsalted Butter
100ml Stock (Pork or Vegetable)
1tbsp Fresh Thyme, chopped
100ml Creme Fraiche
2 Green Apples, peeled, cored and sliced
In a pan heat the oil and butter until melted and fry the chops until browned on both sides. Then remove them from the pan and place on kitchen roll to help remove the excess oil/fat.
In the same pan add the shallots and fry until they soften and brown. Then return the pork to the pan and add the cider and chopped thyme and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove the pork from the pan and place in the oven to keep warm for a little while.
Take the cornflour and mix with 1tbsp water to make a thin paste, add this and the creme fraiche to the pan and mix well.
Return the chops to the pan and add the apple pieces, allow to gently heat for around 10 minutes.
Serve with mash or rice and enjoy!

For an alternative you could make this with leeks and mushrooms, or if you don't like pork chops try using sausages instead.
