Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine a large pinch of salt with a few grindings of pepper, the cayenne and garlic, and sprinkle apples with this mixture. Put apples in a baking dish, pour white wine around them and bake until apples are shriveled but moist, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat in a skillet large enough to hold pork. Dust pork lightly with flour and sear it on both sides for a total of just a minute or so, it need not become brown. Add red wine and adjust heat so mixture boils energetically. Cook pork, turning occasionally, until it gains a beautiful deep color, is cooked through and wine reduces to a syrup; about 10 minutes. Season meat with salt and pepper. Serve pork with red wine sauce spooned over it, next to apples, with a little of the white wine cooked in.
