    I am constantly on the search for quick and easy weeknight meals to cook for the family. This one pan pork with apple is the perfect example of a no fuss dinner that’s hearty, delicious and on the table in less than 30 minutes.

    I proceed with caution when I try recipes labelled as quick and easy because some claim to be just that. However, when your 20 minutes in and the kitchen sink is piled up with more dishes than a dinner party it can all seem too good to be true. I promise you this one will not disappoint.

    Pork and apple is such a classic and wonderful combination. If you have never tried it then you definitely need to get on the pork and apple bandwagon.

    You can serve this up just as is or if you want a side or two a simple garden salad or steamed green beans will pair perfectly. If you are feeding a hungry bunch you can also serve the pork with mashed potato. Sometimes I’ll serve it with sweet potato mash.

    So the next time you’re searching for a quick and hearty dinner make sure to give this one pan pork and apple dish a try. It’s sure to become a regular on the family menu.
