Pork Chops and Vegetables with Apple Sauce

I’ve never cooked pork chops before – I’ve never really been a fan – but after I did a bit of research, I discovered that steaming is actually a great way to keep them moist during cooking.  Of course, pork chops aren’t the same without apple sauce, so this recipe cooks the apple sauce, vegetables and meat all at the same time.  I’m now a fan of pork chops!

Serves 4

Pork Chops Apple Sauce | ThermomixIngredients

4 x 250g pork loin chops; bone in and fat trimmed

2 carrots, peeled and cut into 1cm pieces

2 cups broccoli florets

2 cups frozen peas 


2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 tsp dijon mustard

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp dried oregano

Salt and pepper

Apple Sauce

2 apples, peeled, cored and quartered

1 tbsp lemon juice

100g water

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


1. Combine pork chops and marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside for 15 minutes

2. Put apples into the Thermomix bowl and chop with the measuring cup (MC) on for 3 seconds/Speed 4

3. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, put the remaining apple sauce ingredients into the Thermomix and close the lid

4. Put carrots into the Varoma bowl

5. Line the Varoma tray with wax or baking paper and place pork chops on top

6. Assemble the Varoma and cook for 15 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1

7. Add broccoli and peas into the Varoma bowl, reassemble the Varoma and cook for a further 5 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1 (or until pork chops are cooked)

8. Remove the Varoma, put the MC on the Thermomix and blend the apple sauce for 20-30 seconds/Speed 6
