Grilled Breaded Pork Chops with Homemade Apple Sauce


We strolled up to the local grocer and started to get bits and pieces for the fridge when it dawned on me that we’ve never, ever done pork chops on the Big Green Asian Egg.  Well, I was a bit out of my comfort zone as I didn’t have my usual set of recipe books to troll through however Epicurious has a great Iphone app that did the trick as I was standing at the meat counter. Nothing like a little culinary spontaneity!

The recipe actually intended the cook to fry the chops in a skillet……why waste the gas and oil when you’ve got hard wood charcoal to burn? By grilling the pork, it turned out healthier, still incredibly juicy and tremendously delicious (note Heather’s photo below.)

Here’s what I got off the “tinternet” with few modifications by yours truly – no frying remember!

Ingredients:

For the chops:

  1. 2 cups milk

  2. 3 tsp salt

  3. 4-8 (1/2 ” thick) pork chops with bone in

  4. 3 1/2 cups of breadcrumbs (I used the crumbs that are often used for Asian fried prawn – can’t tell you what it is as there are no English characters on the packaging!)

  5. 1 tbs minced garlic

  6. 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary

  7. 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme

For the apple sauce:

  1. 4 green apples – peeled and cored

  2. 1/4 cup water

  3. 3 tbs of packed brown sugar

  4. 1 tbs of cider vinegar

  5. 1 bay leaf

  6. 1/4 tsp of allspice – I subbed it with Old Bay and it tasted awesome

  7. Cinnamon – I added a good sprinkling on top as it all simmered
