There’s nothing like the sweet surprise of cooked fruit complementing tender, savory meat. In these recipes, apples are a sweet, slightly tart companion for pork, chicken, beef, lamb, duck, and sausages.
"The brine is perfect," says bayareas. "It's the key to juicy, moist meat!"
"Always a gem," says Nolan. "Added garlic to the mix and double the marinade."
"The apple and onion together work magic on this classic dish," says Katie.
"A healthy and tasty chicken salad with a fruity twist," says Karen. "Great on a croissant or in a honey pita."
"They are so flavorful you can eat them without a bun," says Norm. "I would recommend putting on some extra teriyaki sauce."
"This is a very healthy lunch salad," says seajillian. "Flaked salmon sweetened with apples and raisins and eaten on whole wheat crackers."
"Delicious," says ivyguppy. "I shredded the apple with a cheese grater instead of chopping it up. The apples melted right into the soup and it was de-lish."
"The chicken is so tender," says mirikim03. "And the spicy Korean red pepper paste with the fresh big chunks of apple, celery, and bell pepper are just so wholesome and hearty. Serve with a bowl of steamed white rice, tortilla, pita bread, or sandwich bread."
"Easy to make, great taste, grilled very quickly, and the family, who usually won't eat pork unless it's bacon, loved it," raves Joseph.
"Delicious, and truly a restaurant quality dish," says GolgerGirl. "Wonderful with basmati rice."
