Savory Pork & Apple Butter Biscuits

What goes better than “pork chops and applesauce”??  *In your finest Peter Brady impersonating Humphrey Bogart voice. ..

Well, I have one for ya!  This is a fun one!  Savory, sweet, inexpensive and comforting!  I like to make these for brunch alongside a fruit salad or even for dinner with some roasted sweet potatoes.

If you’ve never tried Apple Butter, don’t let the name fool you in any way.  It’s inexplainable, but kind of similar to a rich applesauce..fantastic on toast!! (Or any leftover biscuits 😉

…And what goes better than ‘pork chops & applesauce’! 😉

The Starting Lineup

  • 8-12 (tenderized) pork loin cutlets 
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 jar Apple Butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp each black pepper, kosher salt & cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 recipe Buttermilk Biscuits | Railroad Wife, or any store bought biscuits  

With your biscuits finished (or in oven baking if you’re a multitasker..just don’t forget about them!), heat a skillet to medium with your two tbsp of butter. 

 

Next, add in your entire sliced onion.  Drop heat down to low or med-low and occasionally stir these onions until they’re soft and a beautiful brown shade.  This can take a bit of time, but it’s so worth it!!  All the sugars come out and they take on a great ‘sweet’ taste!  *Once these onion slices have started to soften, add in a Tbsp of the Apple Butter..continue cooking till it’s that soft, golden color I spoke of. 

     

While the onions are doing their thing, we’ll coat the cutlets.  In a shallow dish, add together the flour along with the salt, pepper and cayenne.  Mix to combine.  Take each pork loin cutlet and dredge each side in this mix, shake off excess and set aside. 

   
Onions are finally done!  Set them aside in a covered dish to keep warm.  In that same skillet (do not wipe out) add in the vegetable oil.  Heat to medium high.

Place the cutlets into the hot sweet onion flavored/butter/oil bath and cook for about 1-2 minutes each side.  *Remember, mine are tenderized and thin cut, so they cook FAST!  If you chose a thicker cut, please cook accordingly. 

   Woohoo!!  Assembly time!  Halve each one of your glorious biscuits and slather on some of that Apple Butter on each side.  Next, place on your fried pork loin topped with some of those caramelized onions.  Cap off with the top of your biscuit and devour..you can’t eat just one!
