- 1 green apple cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
- 2 figs, cut into similar sized slices as apples (can be replaced by peaches)
- 1 cup red wine, of your choice (optional)
For the marinade
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoon chili vinegar, or a vinegar of your choice
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 6-8 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
- Salt and freshly grounded black pepper, as per taste
- Slit each pork chop from the edges to the center thereby opening it into two halves leaving it intact from the back.
- Prepare the marinade
- Take a mixing bowl and combine the olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, chili vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, lemon juice and minced garlic.
- Add the pork chops to the bowl and sprinkle salt, pepper, dried thyme along with rosemary and mix them well so that chops are well coated. Place the chops in the refrigerator for them to marinate for around 6–8 hours.
- Heat a large skillet or pan and pour some butter on it. Add the onions and fry till they start to turn brown. Add the whipped cream along with mushrooms. Stir well to slightly reduce the cream.
- As the mixture starts to boil, pour the chicken broth and add the marinated pork chops and cook them over medium-low flame for 4-5 minutes. Flip the chops to cook from other side while the broth boils and reduces. Cook till the chops are cooked from the center and don’t look pink in color.
- Once the chops are almost cooked, add the apples and figs (or peaches) and pour in the red wine (if using). Sprinkle some salt and pepper, as per taste and stir well. Serve hot with a wine of your choice.
