This is a recipe that uses everyday ingredients to make pork chops into something elegant. And tasty. As I noted in another post, we’re not big alcohol consumers so we’re likely to have a bottle of cider in the pantry rather than the fridge. If we have hard cider on hand. Apple juice works for this as well.
