  1. Combine the applesauce and Dijon mustard in a small bowl, and set aside.
  2. For extra flavor, season the pork chops on both sides with salt and freshly ground black pepper before cooking.
  3. Heat the coconut oil on high heat in a frying pan. Cook the pork chops so that the fat on the sides are rendered/cooked first. Using tongs for this makes it a lot easier.
  4. Cook each side of the pork chops for around 3-4 minutes until they’re golden.
  5. For medium rare (this is also the minimum recommended internal temperature for cooking pork), the internal temperature of the pork chops should be 145 F (63 C).
  6. Make sure the pork chops are cooked to your liking (cut up a piece and check if you’re unsure or don’t have a meat thermometer).
  7. Serve with the apple Dijon sauce.
