Dantanna's Berkshire pork rib chop with Granny Smith apple-bourbon sauce

Servings: 4


4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, thinly sliced

24 Tbsp. (3 sticks) unsalted butter, divided

4 12 oz. Berkshire pork rib chops

½ cup dark brown sugar

1 cup bourbon


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter. Add the apple slices and saute. Set aside.
  • Grill the pork rib chops to desired doneness (Cooking five minutes per side will result in a medium cooked chop). Transfer to four serving plates and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, add the brown sugar to a large saucepan. Warm over medium heat and immediately and carefully add the bourbon. Once the flames subside, stir 30 to 60 seconds, until the sugar is dissolved. Add the sauteed apples and the remaining (2 sticks) butter. Stir until the butter melts.
  • Ladle sauce over pork rib chops. Serve with mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus.
