  • 4
    Good Nature® Boneless Pork Loin Chops, cut 1” thick (see note)
  • 1 pinch
    kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp
  • 3 large
    shallots, finely chopped
  • 2
    apples, cut into ¼” thick wedges
  • ¾ cup
    apple cider
  • 2 tbsp
    maple syrup

  • 3 dashes
    hot sauce

Pat pork chops dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add chops and cook for 2 minutes per side or until browned. Transfer chops to a plate; set aside.

Add shallots and apples to skillet and cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add cider; bring to a boil. Return chops to skillet; cover and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145°F in the thickest part of the meat, turning chops over halfway through cooking. With slotted spoon transfer chops and apples to clean plate; keep warm.

Stir maple syrup, heavy cream, and hot sauce into skillet; increase heat and cook, swirling pan occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until sauce thickens.

Place waffles on each of 4 serving plates; top evenly with pork and apples. Pour sauce over all and sprinkle with parsley.

Note: To cut chops, place the loin fat side up on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut perpendicular to the loin. Be sure to cut chops that are consistent in thickness to ensure even cooking.
