Grain-free, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Refined Sugar-free, Nut-free

Serves 4

2 tbsp coconut oil
4 pork chops
1 apple, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped or minced
1 tsp thyme leaves
1 cup chicken or veg stock
2tbsp arrowroot powder
salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a sauce pan.
2. Fry the onions and apple over medium heat until onions are softened and golden, stirring frequently.
3. Add the garlic and continue cooking for a minute.
4. Add the arrowroot powder stirring (or whisking if you don't mind the onions and apples caught up in the whisk) continuously until a smooth paste is formed (this is meant to vaguely resemble a traditional flour and butter roux used to make a basic white sauce).
5. Continue stirring/ whisking while pouring in the stock, bringing the mix to the boil, until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and set aside.
6. In a not too shallow frying pan, heat the other tbsp of oil and when hot, fry the pork chops about a minute per side until golden.
7. Pour the onion apple sauce over the pork chops in the frying pan.
8. Add the thyme leaves, salt and pepper to taste, and simmer gently for about 20 minutes or until pork is cooked through and tender (dependent on thickness of chops).
9. Serve a chop each with a generous pile of onion and apple gravy on top.
10. I like to serve this alongside some mashed sweet potato and a big pile of iron-rich spinach or kale to soak up the gravy. Or in this case, some Chinese 5 spice flavoured cauliflower, cabbage and broccoli.
