Baby Food Friday: Pork Chops and Applesauce

It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve written a Baby Food Friday post. We’ve been in a bit of a food rut around here, and have not been trying anything new. Unless you count introducing KD as new…

So, here is the latest recipe we’ve tried. It’s from Canadian Living magazine, and is still available online here. I actually made it when I first came across the recipe for us. It was very yummy. I had completely forgotten about it until I was sorting through my recipe clippings, which I have far too many of.

For those of you that are allergic to apples, pears and pear juice makes a good substitute 🙂 . As always, make sure your little one is age appropriate for the ingredients in this recipe and always be careful introducing new foods. This recipe is appropriate for 8 months and up.

Pork Chops & Applesauce

Baby Food Pork Chops with Applesauce2 tsp canola oil
1/4 cups thinly sliced onions
6 oz boneless pork loin chop
1 Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice

In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, stirring often, until tender and golden, about 5 minutes.

Add pork; cook for about 3 minutes or until browned.

Stir in apple; cook until golden and starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in apple juice, scraping up any brown bits; bring to simmer. Cover and cook until apple is tender and pork can be shredded easily, about 20 minutes. Let cool.

In blender or food processor, purée pork mixture to desired consistency, adding up to 1/4 cup (50 mL) more apple juice if desired.

Makes 1-1/2 cups.

Enjoy! Send us your recipes and snack ideas for your little ones, we’d love to share them!
