Pork Chops w/Apple-Raisin Relish

I got this recipe from Martha Stewart believe it or not, I was doing a search for a Pork Chop with a Sweet Salsa sauce because well I don’t know I wanted something different, so I paid a little more money for the lower in calories and fat pork (not sure of the cut it says pork chop) Stay tuned for pics!


  • 2 tart green apples, such as Granny Smith ( 3/4 pound), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons raisins, or dried currants
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar, or white-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 pork loin chops, each about 1/2 inch thick (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper


Make the relish: In a medium saucepan, combine the apples, sugar, raisins, vinegar, and ginger, over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes.

Reduce heat; simmer, partially covered, until apples are soft, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Make the pork chops: Season chops with salt and pepper.

 In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops, and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve with apple-raisin relish.

I poured my relish right on top!! YUMMY!!!

Cooks Note:

Try the tart-sweet relish with other cuts of pork, such as roasts, tenderloin, or ham.
