    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Flour 1 tablespoon
    Cumin ½ teaspoon
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Dash of fresh ground black pepper
    Pork loin chops 2 (6-ounce)
    Medium, tart apple (such as Granny Smith), cored and sliced lengthwise 1
    Brown sugar ½ tablespoon
    Cinnamon 1 teaspoon
    Butter 2 teaspoons
    Canola oil 2 teaspoons
    Vegetable stock ½ cup
    White wine vinegar 1 tablespoon
    Directions
    1. Mix together the flour, cumin, salt, and pepper on a large plate. Dip the pork chops into mixture so that they are evenly coated.
    2. Combine the apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
    3. Heat the butter in a small, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the diced apples and cook for about 5-6 minutes, stirring often, until slightly golden.
    4. Heat the canola oil in a medium to large skillet over high heat. Place the pork in the skillet and sear for about 1 ½ minutes on each side. Then turn the heat down to medium-low and continue to cook the pork for 2-3 minutes per side.
    5. Add the stock and vinegar to the skillet. Scrape up any brown bits stuck to the pan and cook with the cover on for 3-4 minutes, until the pork is cooked through and the sauce is somewhat thickened.
    6. Serve the pork with the sauce and apples.

    Exchanges5 lean meats; 1 starch; 1 fat; ½ fruit
