Guaranteed to be a fast favorite, this recipe plays on the sweet-savory match made in flavor heaven: pork + apples. Sautéed apples add a hint of sweetness and delightfully smooth texture to this hearty paleo pork dish. If you don't have access to Honeycrisp apples, use a pink lady, gala, or jazz apple instead. Dijon mustard counteracts the sweetness of the apple adding incredible depth of flavor that the whole family can enjoy.

How to Make It
Preheat broiler to high. Set the oven rack on the middle shelf.
Combine sprouts, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl; toss to coat. Arrange sprouts in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 12 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil; swirl to coat. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; add to pan. Cook 3 minutes. Turn; cook 2 minutes or until done. Transfer pork to a plate.
Add 1 tablespoon ghee and apple to pan; sauté 2 minutes. Add stock and nutmeg; bring mixture to a boil. Stir in remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, remaining 1 tablespoon ghee, syrup, Dijon mustard, and parsley; cook 1 minute. Divide chops among 4 plates; top evenly with apple mixture. Serve with sprouts.
