I love a recipe that harmonizes just the right flavors all in one pan.  Fresh fruit and herbs are contrasted by tangy mustard, and they simmer together and blend with savory pasture raised pork chops to bring you joy on a plate. 

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Ramstead Ranch pork chops or pork steaks
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 C bone broth
  • 2 Tbsp fresh herbs, rosemary works well, thyme or sage would work well, too, and best you use a blend.
  • 2 medium apples, sliced thin
  • 1 large onion, sliced thin
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Tools

  • 12-inch skillet or cast iron
  • Wisk, bowl, and a nice, sharp knife

Instructions

  1. Thaw pork chops and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add 1 Tbsp to your pan and heat on high until oil smokes.  You want you pan HOT!
  3. Sear pork chops, about 2 min per side.  Remove the chops from heat.
  4. Lower heat to medium high.  Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to pan.  Heat oil and add onions and apples.  Turn occasionally slightly toasted, about 5 min.  Add salt, pepper, and fresh herbs, and stir.  Cook onions until they are translucent.
  5. Whisk together bone broth and mustard, and add to apple-onion mixture.  
  6. Nest pork chops in pan making sure to surround the chops with the apple-onion mixture.
  7. Simmer for additional 4 min, until chops are cooked through.
  8. Enjoy!

RECIPE: Sirloin Tip Beef Stroganoff

This meal is comfort food in a bowl! You can make it fancy with homemade noodles, or keep it easy and use whatever you have on hand. For maximum flavor, add drippings from pot roast or short ribs to your sauce!

RECIPE: Sausage Gravy

This sausage gravy is easy, versatile, and freezes well to boot! I like to whip up a mega batch and freeze it in family-sized portions so it’s ready for busy days during the school year. Go the classic route and eat it over eggs, potatoes, or biscuits. This also makes a killer pizza sauce (top with cheese of choice, mushrooms, and red onions), and it is the perfect base for Pepper Sausage Pasta. However you choose to chow down, we know this will be a family favorite recipe at your house.

RECIPE: 100% Grassfed Bison Steak Perfection

Bison steaks are very similar to beef steaks, and can mostly be prepared in the same ways. The one difference is that bison is quite a bit leaner than beef, so you’ll want to keep a close eye on time and temperature, to make sure not to overcook. One great method is to sear the meat on a hot grill first, then finish cooking it in the oven. Check out these cooking tips, below, for tender, juicy results!
