- 3 tablespoons butter unsalted
- 2 large russet potatoes baked, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 medium yellow onion chopped
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 large Fuji apple peeled, cored and diced
- 3/4 teaspoon maple seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
- Kosher salt and freshly gound black pepper
- 4 New York (top loin) pork chops 1 inch thick
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus more to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper plus more to taste
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3/4 cup chicken stock
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream

Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp and browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Reserve the bacon fat – about 4 tbsps. Heat butter and 2 tbsps of bacon fat in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Add potato, onion and apple and cook until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the maple seasoning and cinnamon, if using. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.
Heat remaining bacon fat in a large skillet over medium heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Add to skillet and cover. Cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted through the center of the chop reads 145 degrees F, about 15 minutes. Transfer the chops to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
Pour off all but 1 tbsp of the pan drippings from the skillet. Whisk flour into pan drippings and let bubble over medium heat for 1 minute. Whisk in broth, maple syrup and cream and bring to a boil. Cook, whisking often, until mixture reduces and thickens, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Crumble the bacon into the hash. Serve chops hot with the hash and sauce.
My family and I live in the southeast part of the state. We started raising hogs in the late 1940's with my grandparents, Lee and Dorothy. The second generation of our farm include my parents, Chuck and Debbie and my Aunt and Uncle, Dale and Judy. In 2008, our four families joined together in a partnership to make Springer Family foods.
