I had some sirloin porkchops at hand and decided to try this recipe. I read the review about making it in oven so I decided to take that route.
For the caramel sauce, I failed horribly the first time. I had some butter I accidentally had melted the day before sitting on the counter(fat and liquid had been separated) I used that and perhaps that's where it went wrong? The sauce was burnt, tasted bitter(not to mention burning my tongue while tasting! It is VERY hot so be careful if anyone wants to taste the sauce like I did) I used a shiny metal sauce pan and used highest heat setting.
Second time, I used fresh butter from the fridge, and used medium heat, and used non-stick T-fal pan and it turned out better. I was expecting gravy like sauce so it was a bit of a surprise to get dry looking sauce with not much volume(I doubled the sauce too)
I rubbed this all over the pork chops and mixed the rest with the apples.
In a baking pan, I layered very thinly sliced onions, then the porkchops, then apples. I also added some sliced mushroom and few pecans on top. baked 50min covered at 350 degrees.
The result: Tasted good. Not amazing but good enough. Pork wasn't as tender or flavourful as I expected.(bit dry and tough) There was so much juice everything was swimming in it! I am a beginner when it comes to cooking. Perhaps I didn't do the best job. Since I like the bled of spices used here and I like some sweetness to my food, I'll make this recipe again and see if it gets better!
