Maple-Glazed Pork with Apples

Source: Cooking Light, March 1995

1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
4 4-ounce pork cutlets
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup apple cider
2 medium Golden Delicious apples, each cored and cut into 16 wedges
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well with a wire whisk, and set aside. Place breadcrumbs in a large ziptop plastic bag. Add pork; seal bag, and shake to coat pork with breadcrumbs.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pork, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Add cider and apple wedges; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes or until pork is done. Add maple syrup mixture, and cook 5 minutes or until thick and syrupy. Sprinkle with parsley.

Serves 4.
