Pork Cutlets with Apple Glaze

This looked like a very easy recipe to make, and I wasn't wrong in my thinking. So simple and a wonderful mid week dinner that had a wonderful sweet but not sickly glaze on the pork which didn't require any additional condiments.

A winner in our house, devoured by the kids and on the table in 30 minutes - who's complaining... not me!

Pork Cutlets with Apple Glaze
(Recipe adapted from Symply To Good To Be True Book #4)

Serves: 4
Points per serve: 6

4 Pork Cutlets (200g each) all visible fat removed
2 green apples
cooking spray
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup brandy
1/2 cup apple sauce (in jar)
1 teaspoon cornflour
1 tablespoon water

Peel and core apples, cut in half and slice.

Coat a large non-stick frying pan with cooking spray, add sugar and apple. Allow apple to brown with sugar, cooking on both sides. Once cooked removed from pan to a small bowl, cover with foil and set aside.

Recoat the same frying pan with cooking spray and over a high heat cook pork cutlets for 3 to 5 minutes each side turning once during cooking. Remove to a large plate and cover with foil.

Pour brandy into frying pan and cook for 30 seconds, scrapping the pan base. Add apple sauce and stir well. Combine cornflour with water and add to pan, stirring continuously. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Return pork cutlets to the pan and heat through.

Serve pork cutlets with apples and drizzled with sauce.
