Ingredients

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 2

    bone-in pork chops (about 1 lb. total)

  • 3

    tablespoons cooking fat

  • 1

    onion, sliced

  • 2

    apples, peeled, cored and diced

  • 1/2

    cup apple cider

  • 1/2

    teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/2

    teaspoon allspice

  • 1

    pinch nutmeg

  • 2

    generous handfuls frisée

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F Mix the salt and pepper in a small bowl and use to season both sides of the pork chops. Melt 2 tablespoons of the cooking fat in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the fat is hot, add the pork chops and sear until you see a golden brown crust, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and sear the other side for 2 minutes. Transfer the pork chops to a baking dish and roast in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F, 10 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness. While the pork is roasting, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon fat and the onion in the same skillet. Cook over medium heat until the onion is translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the apple, apple cider, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. Cook (while scraping all the easy bits off the bottom with a wooden spoon), until the apples soften, about 5 minutes. Transfer the applesauce to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Place the frisée on plates. Top with the pork and serve with the applesauce.
