Pork Chops with Apple-Raisin Relish


2 tart green apples - 3/4 pound - peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons raisins or dried currants
1 tablespoon cider vinegar or white-wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger pinch of cayenne pepper
4 pork loin chops, each about 1/2 inch thick (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil


In a medium saucepan, combine the apples, sugar, raisins, vinegar, ginger, and cayenne over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat; simmer, partially covered, until apples are soft, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pork Chops
Season chops with salt and pepper
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat
Add the pork chops, and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side
Serve with apple-raisin relish
