Pork chops with apples and onions is one of my favorite ways to make pork chops. Apples and pork just go so well together that I don’t usually make gravy for my pork (even a pork roast). I just serve it with applesauce (a great time saver for when you’re crunched for time and can’t make something like this). I’ve made caramelized apples and onions to go with my pork chops in the past, but this version with balsamic vinaigrette is much lower in carbohydrates and fat (since you don’t add quite a bit of brown sugar and butter). The best part is that it’s simple and just as delicious to make as with caramelized apples and onions – but it’s healthier. I prefer bone in pork chops, since they tend to keep their juiciness better for me, but you can use anything. Also, if you’ve got a pork roast in the oven, you can still make this topping and serve it on the side for your family to put over the top of their pork roast. It doesn’t matter how you make your pork chops, either. In the skillet (like this recipe), grilled or baked, the topping will work just as well with any of them.
Summer is a great time to grill, and these pork chops are delightful. They have a glaze, so there’s not need to marinate the pork chops. Just whip up the glaze, brush it on the pork chops and grill. The glaze has a little sweet marmalade, lime and spicy jalapeno. It’s a perfect combination. Since you’re already grilling, add some seasoned vegetables in aluminum foil and ears of sweet corn. You’ll have a whole meal ready to serve in no time!
Pork roast is one of those incredibly versatile meats. It’s great as a roast, top it with apple sauce or caramelized apples and onions. It’s also the perfect barbecue meat. This is incredibly easy and simple to make, especially since you cook the roast in the slow cooker. It turns out moist and tender every time. When you take the roast out of the slow cooker, it’ll be falling apart for you. This is a great dish to have at a potluck, since it’s so easy to do and a little goes a long ways. Serve it with a side of potato salad, coleslaw and fresh fruit.

This Spicy Ground Pork Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe was something that I’ve been meaning to execute for a while now. Autumn after autumn, I’d see those lovely acorn squash at the store, and I decided that now was the time to create a new and unique Acorn Squash Recipe that was delicious and still Weight Watchers friendly. So many traditional fall acorn squash recipes use sugar and butter, opting for a sweeter type recipe. I wanted something savory that would still complement the slightly sweet, delicate flavor of the squash. So my Spicy Ground Pork Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe was born, and wow was it good!! My husband and I loved it, and found each serving to be very large. If you aren’t concerned about fat or calories, try this with some chorizo or pork sausage instead….delish!
