Pork Chops with Spiced Apples

This pork recipe will work with pork chops or pork tenderloin. It's easy, flavorful, and Paleo compatible.



  • 2 Granny Smith apples- peeled, cored, and small diced
  • 2 T grass fed butter or ghee
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 C coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp all spice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs pork chops
  • 1 T avocado oil


  1. In a small saucepan on low heat, add the diced apples, butter or ghee, garlic, coconut sugar cumin, cinnamon, all spices, nutmeg, ½ teaspoon of sea salt, and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Stirring occasionally, cook the mixture until the apples are tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. While the apple mixture is cooking, sprinkle the pork chops with ½ teaspoon of sea salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper.
  3. Add the avocado oil to a medium skillet on medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add the pork chops and cook each side for about 7-10 minutes.
  4. If you have thicker pork chops, you will want to place them in the oven at 400 degrees for 7-10 minutes to finish cooking. My pork chops were about 1/2 inch thick, and I did not need to do this.
  5. Once the pork chops are cooked to the desired doneness, top them with the spiced apple mixture and serve.
