The apple flavours in this dish makes this pork chop recipe a complete stunner. The apple juice and stock keeps the meat moist for serving. Adding mashed potatoes and green beans, as shown here, would round off this kid-friendly quick meal from Matthew Tomkinson to make a superb mid-week supper

Method
1.
Dry and season the pork steaks with a pinch of salt and pepper
Room for a little one
Ask your little helper to place the meat in a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and then roll the pork in the seasoning until evenly coated
2.
Place a pan over a medium heat and add a little olive oil. Once hot, sear the steaks all over until evenly golden brown
3.
Remove the pork from the pan. Add the butter, onions, garlic, apple, mushrooms, and sage to the hot pan and sweat for 5-10 minutes
What 'to sweat' means
To sweat is to cook something - usually vegetables - gently on a low-medium heat until tender but not coloured, while stirring frequently
4.
Pour in the apple juice. Bring to the boil and cook until reduced by half, approximately 15 minutes
5.
Add the stock and reduce by half again, approximately 10 minutes. Once reduced, pour in the cream and stir well. Return the pork to the pan and turn the heat down
6.
Leave the pan on the heat for a little longer - so that the pork is cooked through, around 6-8 minutes. Season the pan with a pinch of salt and pepper
7.
Remove from the heat and divide across 4 plates. Serve immediately
