Roasted pork chops with apple and cannellini bean ragout

Making a delicious dinner doesn't have to be expensive. A little creativity and pairing of ingredients can make an inexpensive cut of meat taste great. Pork chops may not be everybody's favorite but switching up a recipe can really spice it up.
Apples and pork are a great flavor combination. Sweet apples can transform an otherwise bland pork chop into something wonderful.
This recipe produces a rich, caramelized and hearty ragout that tops wonderfully tender and succulent pork.


6-8 pork chops
1/2 cup all purpose flour for dredging
1 apple chopped into cubes
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 onion diced
1/2 cup apple juice
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
1 jar italian cannellini beans
1 tbsp dry rosemary
salt and pepper
olive oil

Pre-heat oven to 400*F
On stove top, heat olive oil in a large oven proof pan and saute chopped onion and garlic for 5 mins.
Lightly dredge pork chops in flour and add to pan, brown on both sides approx. 5 mins.
Add chopped apple, cannellini beans, rosemary, salt and pepper then add apple juice and stock -  place uncovered  in oven.
Allow to roast for about 1 hour basting occasionally.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time 1hr 10 mins.
