Country Style Pork with Apples
This is comfort food to me. I do not always eat things on the rich side, with cream etc so when I do, it's comfort food to me.
Plus I love apples in a main dish, especially with pork.
2 TBSP butter
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin sliced into 1 inch thick medallions
1 onion chopped
1 1/2 cups celery chopped ( about 3 stalks)
2 apples peeled cored and sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
2/3 cup apple cider or juice
1 TBSP flour
1/2 cup whipping cream
Pre-heat over to 350.
Melt butter in a skillet over med high heat. Add the pork slices and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side or until browned. Place in a baking dish and set aside.
In the same skillet on med heat, add the onion, celery and apple and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add garlic and seasonings and cook for1-2 minutes more.
In a bowl mix the flour with a small amount of cider to form a paste.
Stir the remaining cider, cream and paste mixture into the skillet. Bring to a boil, then simmer to reduce the sauce as desired.
Pour over pork and bake for 20-25 mins.
Serve with egg noodles.
