Pork chops and apple slices are cooked in a rich, creamy, cider sauce, seasoned with garlic and thyme. Serve this casserole with a selection of fresh vegetables such as baby carrots, French beans and peas tossed in a little melted butter with plenty of black pepper and fresh mint.
Use Calvados if you don't have any brandy on hand.
I used shoulder steaks, red wine and a bitter sweet cider, but I did find that one apple probably would have been enough (personal taste), I will try it again, but with less apple. - 06 Dec 2015
At the end I removed the pork, poured everything else into a saucepan and added some cornflour to thicken then added he cream at the end. Al the plates were clean at the end so will be doing this again - 08 Sep 2014
