One of my all time favorite side dishes is a bowl of oh-so-simple Fried Apples, and, yes, the canned ones are decent, but they don’t compare with taking just a few extra minutes and making them from scratch. They are quick, easy, and tasty, especially with any pork dish.
This recipe will feed about four people, so expect to cook one apple per person.
4 firm fleshed apples ( I used Galas, but Granny Smith, Braeburn, Honey Crisp or Pink Lady will work just as well.)
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Peel, core and wedge all of the apples. I used my handy-dandy Pampered Chef apple corer/wedger to save a little time.
I then sliced each wedge into three slices, but this isn’t really necessary. The apples will just take a little longer to cook. Put the sliced apples, butter and brown sugar in a cast iron skillet over low-medium heat. Cook and stir until the apples are soft and tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and enjoy!
