#1 tip for making apple cider pork chops
- The key to this recipe, is browning the pork chops. They give it this delicious crunchy, outside texture, and on the inside it’s juicy and tender.
The key to browning it just right, is by not adding the pork chops until the oil is heated through. If you add it too soon, it won’t brown as well, and your pork chops won’t have much texture to them.
How to make pork gravy
Pork gravy is simple with this recipe. Once the pork is done cooking in the pan, remove it, and leave the remaining juices and liquid in the pan.
Add a little cornstarch and water or milk. Whisk the mixture, until it is smooth. This should still be over medium heat. Let the heat do the thickening, as you continue to stir it.
The thickening will take about 2 minutes. I also like to add a little extra honey mustard to my gravy, but then again, it is my favorite dipping sauce.
Adding extra flavor is totally optional, but I do recommend adding just a squeeze of honey mustard.
