Kassler Pork Chops

Place 4 chops on a bed of
2 finely sliced onions
2 peeled and sliced granny smith apples
100 mls water
Simmer 20 mins
Remove chops, reduce liquid in pan.
Return chops to pan to reheat.

Optional - after reducing sauce add
1 teaspoon mustard
1 Tablespoon brandy
2 Tablespoons cream

Barnyard Marinade

This is based on 'Better than A1 marinade' from Cook's Illustrated. Cows, sheep, chicken and pigs all get on together in the barnyard, so why not the marinade pot!

1/3 cup vegetable oil
½ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ground black pepper

Mix all together and use to marinate beef, lamb, pork and chicken in the same dish.
Leave at least an hour, or up to 3 days.

I have used this amount to marinate 4kg meat, leaving it in the fridge for 3 days and just pulling out what we needed each evening. You need to mix it around well though.
