Hard Cider Braised Berkshire Pork Chops Recipe Instructions

  • 4 Kurobuta Berkshire Pork Chops
  • Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, diced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Old-Fashioned Mustard
  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cut into wedges
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup of Apple Cider beer
  • 2 twigs of rosemary (optional, for garnish)

  1. Season the pork chops with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, on both sides.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp. of olive oil in a large heavy sauce pan over high heat, then add the chops and sear both sides until browned, 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and reserve.
  3. Lower heat to med-low, then using the same pan, add shallots, honey and mustard, cooking until soft. Add apples and cranberries, stir, raise the heat to medium-high and return the pork to the pan. Add the hard cider, stirring occasionally until the apples slightly soft (but not mushy), about 5-8 minutes. Let rest a couple of minutes before serving.
