This is a recipe I actually found in a real cookbook, not online! It’s from Le Petit Larousse Cuisinier my boyfriend gave me. It’s a beautiful, very useful book by the way – but you could kill someone with it, it’s so heavy. Now the recipe I tried:
20g (1.5 tbsp) butter
1 tbsp. olive oil
4 pork chops (I used very delicately cut pieces of meat called « Charbonnades »)
2 tbsp. maple syrup
2 tbsp. crème fraîche
Preheat the oven to 200°C (392° F). Peal and cut the apples into slices, put lemon juice on them to prevent them from browning.
Heat up the butter and oil in a pan. Salt and pepper the meat, then cook it on each side for about 2 minutes. Set the pieces on a plate going to the oven.
Distribute the apple slices on the meat and pour the maple syrup and the crème fraîche on it. Let it cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
I served everything with a side salad and pasta, very yummy!
