- Combine the applesauce and Dijon mustard in a small bowl, and set aside.
- For extra flavor, season the pork chops on both sides with salt and freshly ground black pepper before cooking.
- 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.
- Cook each side of the pork chops for around 3-4 minutes until they’re golden.
- 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).
- 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).
- Serve with the apple Dijon sauce.
