Pork Chops and Vegetables with Apple Sauce

Page Contents: Recipe

Jump to Recipe

Pork chops seem like one of those old-fashioned dishes that our parents and grandparents used to eat.  Generally, they were  overcooked (to avoid food poisoning), which made it tough and dry – not appealing at all!  The upshot is that I had never cooked a pork chop before I came up with this recipe.    

After a bit of research, I discovered that steaming is actually a great way to keep pork moist.  Enter the Thermomix.  The Varoma tray is just the right size to hold 4 decent-sized pork chops.  Of course, pork isn’t the same without applesauce, which also falls within the Thermomix wheelhouse.  The Thermomix chops, cooks and stirs the apples to make the sauce.   

This recipe allows you to cook the apples, vegetables and meat – all at the same time – for an easy one-pot meal.  The final result is a complete meal with tender and flavourful pork.  With the Thermomix, there’s no need to be afraid of cooking pork anymore!
