Roasted Fennel, Apples and Onions
What You Need:
1 large fennel bulb, trimmed and sliced (save some of the fronds for plating)
1 large onion, sliced (red preferably)
1 -2 large sweet apples sliced (I used my favorite - Braeburns)
1 tablespoon olive oil
What You Do:
Preheat oven to 425
Toss fennel, apples and onion in olive oil and spread out on a rimmed baking pan. Roast until golden, stirring a few times, 30-35 minutes.
If you want to make the pork with it:
About 10 minutes after mixture goes in oven - salt and pepper your pork chops and brown in an oven proof skillet.
Transfer to oven and roast until done (about15-20 minutes)
When pork is done, transfer to another plate and let rest, meanwhile place ovenproof skillet on stove (careful handle will be hot) Stir in 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and scrape up any brown bits in pan. Add the apple mixture and stir to combine. Serve mixture over pork (or just about anything.) Sprinkle with fennel fronds.
