Here is a healthy recipe that captures fall flavors: Pork Chops with apples!

I made these pork chops last night and rounded out the meal with veggies and  Lunberg’s Brown Rice couscous.

This was the first time I have tried this, and it is pretty good! It is essentially course cut brown rice, so it cooks much faster (only about 15 minutes). I loved the texture; you could use this in a lot of recipes, like tabouli and casseroles. I even ate some again for breakfast this morning with some milk, cinnamon, and stevia!

  • 1 pound lean boneless sirloin pork chops trimmed
  • Powdered chipotle chili
  • Salt
  • Garlic or garlic powder
  • ½ apple tart and flavorful is best, cored
  • ½ onion
  • Chicken broth
  • Balsamic vinegar optional


  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray the pan with a bit of oil. Trim the pork chops of any visible fat. Sprinkle the pork chops with chipotle pepper, salt, and garlic powder.
  • Cook the pork chops in the hot skillet, turning occasionally to achieve even browning. Meanwhile, coarsely chop the apple (with peel on – it’s healthy!) and the onion.
  • Remove the pork chops from the skillet and cover them with foil to keep warm.
  • Add the apple and onion to the hot skillet and sauté until tender, deglazing the pan with chicken broth as needed. Season with chipotle powder, garlic, and a splash of balsamic vinegar (if you want!). Serve the apple sauté over the pork chops and enjoy!

  1. Roasted Brown Rice Couscous, that just about sounds like heaven. I used to live in Tunisia a.k.a couscous land and it killed me that I couldn’t eat real couscous where it came from. I could have done with this to hide in my handbag and pretend it was the real deal!
