Onion Applesauce

  • 3 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 medium sweet onion
  • salt, to taste

Pork Cutlets

  • 6 pork cutlets, about ½" thick (see Gr8 Note below)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • teaspoons creole or cajun seasoning, I use Emeril's Creole Essense


Onion Applesauce

  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • Place the whole apples in a baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil. 
  • Place the whole onion, with the peel on, in a separate smaller baking dish. Do not cover with foil.
  • Place both baking dishes in the oven and bake for an hour.
  • Take the apples and onion out of the oven. When cool enough to handle, scoop the cooked apple into a food processor. Add half of the peeled onion and process until smooth. Taste the sauce and add more onion depending on your taste. 
  • Add salt to taste.

Pork Cutlets

  • Heat olive oil in heavy skillet.
  • Season both sides of the pork cutlets with salt, pepper and cajun spice if using it. 
  • Fry each cutlet for about 3 minutes on each side. Serve with a dab of Onion Applesauce and Enjoy!


Gr8 Tips:
  • Click here to make your own Emeril's Essence Creole Seasoning.
  • Many times our local butcher only has 1" boneless pork chops and so I have cut them in half lengthwise for cutlets. Or, you can add the applesauce to any cut of pork! It is delicious!
Gr8 Make Ahead Tip:
  • The applesauce can be prepared and kept in the refrigerator for one week. Bring the applesauce to room temperature before serving.
