Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 Lbs pork sirloin chops boneless (about 1.6 kg)
  • 2 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground sage
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cooking onion thinly sliced
  • 1 large crispy apple (we used ambrosia) sliced
  • 3 tbsp duck fat
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chicken stock
Instructions
  1. Cut the pork into large pieces and place them in a large bowl.

  2. Add the salt, black pepper, ground sage, red pepper flakes and garlic.

  3. Massage the spices into the meat until completely coated and place the bowl in the fridge.

  4. Preheat the stove to 350 ºF.

  5. Place a large oven proof pan on the stove and heat the duck fat on medium high.

  6. Once the duck fat is hot, carefully place the pieces of meat in the pan (you made need to do this step in two batches depending on the size of your pan).

  7. Sear/brown the meat on one side for about 4 to 5 minutes. Then turn over the meat pieces to sear the other side for another 4 to 5 minutes or until the edges are brown.

  8. Place the seared meat in a bowl and set aside.

  9. Without reducing the temperature, add in the remaining 1 tbsp of duck fat in the hot pan.

  10. Add the sliced onions and apples and stir them around the pot. This will deglaze the pan.

  11. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir until coated.

  12. Continue to sauté the onions and apples until they're soft, about 10 minutes.

  13. Add the chicken stock and mix well.

  14. Continue to cook until the liquid reduced by about half, about 6 minutes.

  15. Add the pork back into the pan and coat the meat with the apple/onion mixture.

  16. Place the pan in the oven and cook for 1 hour.

  17. Remove the pan (carefully... the pan is hot!) from the oven and serve with your favourite sides. This is perfect with roasted garlic mashed potatoes or roasted potatoes.
