Recipe from Rachael Ray's "30-Minute Meals 2." Ingredients like apples, maple and mustard are great friends for the dialysis patient.
1/2 cup dark amber maple syrup 4 tablespoons spicy brown mustard 1/4 cup apple cider 1/4 medium onion, finely chopped 1/2 teaspoon allspice 1 teaspoon ground cumin 8 center cut boneless pork loin chops, 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick Extra-virgin olive oil Grill seasoning blend, or salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 3 Golden Delicious apples, sliced across into 1/2-inch rounds, core and peel intact Juice of 1/2 lemon 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated or ground nutmeg
Preheat grill or nonstick griddle pan over medium-high heat, or preheat electric table-top grill to high. Also preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine maple syrup, mustard, cider, onion, allspice and cumin in a small saucepan and cook over moderate heat, 7-10 minutes, until sauce begins to thicken a bit.
Coat chops lightly in oil, season with grill seasoning blend or a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook on the grill pan of your choice, 3 minutes on each side. Baste chops liberally with sauce and cook 2 or 3 minutes more, then transfer to a baking sheet. Baste again with sauce and place in a hot oven to finish cooking. Bake 10-12 minutes, until your apples are ready to come off the grill pan.
Coat apple rounds with lemon juice and a drizzle of oil. Season with grill seasoning or salt and pepper and a little nutmeg. Cover grill pan surface with as many pieces of apple as possible. As the apples get tender, remove and replace with remaining slices. Apples should cook 3 minutes on each side, as you don't want them too soft, just tender.
