Brandied Apples and Pork with Egg Noodles

By: Fast and Flavorful: Great Diabetes Meals from Market to Table by Linda Gassenheimer, published by the American Diabetes Association

Dress up sauteed pork chop recipes with apples caramelized with brandy in this versatile dinner. It is suitable for an evening with friends or just a normal weeknight supper. The pleasing combination of apples and pork is at its best in this Brandied Apples and Pork with Egg Noodles dish.


There are many varieties of apples. Both Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples will hold their shape when cooked. I prefer the tart Granny Smith for this recipe, but either one will work well.

Helpful Hints:

  • The alcohol from the brandy is cooked off in this recipe. However, if you prefer, omit the brandy and add 1/2 cup more apple juice.

  • Boneless, thin-cut pork chops (1/4-inch thick) are called for. If using larger chops, increase the cooking time for the chops about 5 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 160 degrees. Don’t overcook the pork chops.

  • The noodles will stay moist with less oil if you leave a little of the cooking water on them as they drain.

For Brandied Apples and Pork:

  1. Wash and core apple, then thinly slice and cut slices into one inch pieces. Remove visible fat from the pork.
