An old favorite – Apple Cinnamon Pork Chops

I posted this one years ago when I first started the blog. The pictures from that first shoot didn’t turn out too well, which I think may have scared a few folks away from this really delicious meal.  Anyway, we make these pork chops at least twice a month, and I thought they were worth sharing again because they are so tasty and easy to make.

Here is what you need:

  •  4 big pork chops
  • 1 apple
  • 2-3 shallots, chopped
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil
  • Cinnamon and celtic sea salt to taste

Trim the pork chops and then cover them with cinnamon all over (I probably used about 3 tbsp worth). I like to really press the cinnamon powder into the meat on both sides so it will stick well when cooking.


Chop the apples and shallots until they are small, thin pieces.  Heat 3-4 tbsp of the coconut oil over medium heat and add the apples and shallots.  Saute for 5 minutes or until the apples are tender but still a little crisp.  Then set aside.

Next heat a pan on high and add about 2 tbsp coconut oil.  Sear your pork on each side for 2 minutes.  Then add the 1/3 cup of wine. After adding the wine, add the apple and shallot mixture back to the pan, cover and cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes. Depending on the thickness of your pork chops, it might need more or less time.  Make sure you serve the pork chops with plenty of the apple and shallot mixture.

So I posted this picture, not because it looks like a right foot (which it totally does) but because I wanted y’all to see how nice and brown the pork chops got with the cinnamon coating. These really are good. Our whole family loves this pork. I hope you do too!
