Sticky Maple Pork and Apples


The sauce for the sticky maple pork with apples was definitely on point, but, as it turns out, the real clincher was that I had used “pork for pork stew” instead of chopped pork loin, which made it tough as heck and almost impossible to eat — although my boyfriend happily packed it away for the next day’s lunch, declaring, “awesome!”


  • 1 Pound pork loin, sliced
  • 3 apples, sliced
  • 1/4 Cup maple syrup, or more to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons garlic, minced
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • A long drizzle of water
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider or red wine vinegar
  • Whole grain mustard, to taste


Cook the pork in pan in oil for about 5 minutes, then set it aside.

Toss the sliced apples in and cook those for about 5 minutes, too.

Mix all of the other ingredients together and pour it over the apples, then add the pork and simmer it all for — you guessed it — around 5 minutes.

If you want to add mustard into the mixture or onto the side, do that with a couple of minutes left.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
