Curry Pork Chops are a delicious, easy meal idea that the whole family will love! The sauce is rich and creamy with a wonderful curry flavor. Make it as mild or spicy as you like!
The pan-fried pork chops are quick and easy to cook, and you can use bone-in or boneless pork chops! Pan-frying the pork to get a golden exterior and then finishing them off in the sauce means you get such juicy tender pork. The smooth curry sauce is a mixture of onions, apples, broth, and cream.
All simmered together with curry powder and a pinch of sugar. This means you are entirely in control of the spice level. Choose mild or hot curry powder to suit your tastes. A great meal that is ready in under 30 minutes!
Cooking Pork Chops
Pork chops get a bad rap, but when cooked correctly, they are juicy and tender and delicious to eat. They cook quickly, and like chicken, they are a very lean protein. If you have time, then a quick brine will work wonders for your pork. The brining process adds moisture to the meat and also seasons it perfectly. You can leave the pork in the brine for a couple of hours, but just 15 minutes can make a difference.
Brine is just a simple water bath with some salt dissolved into it. This encourages water to move into the pork chops, which means when it is cooked, you lose fewer meat juices! Like I said above, just 15 minutes can make a difference, but on an average weeknight, I tend to leave mine for 30 minutes. (I mean there is always something else to do, right?? Like an endless quantity of laundry!)
The other trick to tender pork chops is a quick tenderizing technique that the restaurant chefs do. Take a fork and stab the eye of the pork chop all over. This is the same principle as a meat mallet, but it doesn’t flatten the chop at all. It just allows the proteins to break apart slightly, resulting in a tender pork chop that sucks up the flavor.
