This is a super easy pork dish (could also use chicken) and it has a GREAT flavor.  Tanginess from the dijon and ginger and sweetness from the apples and stevia.  Winning combo!


Easy Dijon-Ginger Pork with Apples & Onion

4-6 loin pork chops, fat removed (or however many chops you need)
Garlic powder
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 small apple, chopped
Pepper to taste
1/2 tsp dried sage
1 cup low sodium chicken stock
1 tsp jarred minced ginger (or fresh)
4 Tbsp grainy dijon mustard
4 packets Krisda stevia

In a small bowl mix together dijon, krisda stevia, chicken stock and ginger.  In a large skillet on medium, midst pan with cooking spray or lightly brush with oil.  Sprinkle pork chops with garlic powder.  Brown pork chops on both sides.  Remove from pan.  In the same pan, add onion and apple and cook until soft (adding sage and mixing in when its almost done).  Pour in the dijon/broth mixture as well as the pork chops and cook uncovered for 10 minutes, then cover for 6-8 minutes if needed until cooked through.  The chops I had were SUPER thick, so I needed to cover them so they cooked through.

Serve with some sauce spooned over top.  I served with roasted cauliflower (cut cauliflower into small pieces, tossed with seasoning and bit of olive oil and baked at 425 degress for 25 minutes).
