Pork chops w/ apples and shallots

So I tried something a little different on the grill the other night with varing results.  It was apples and shallots over grilled pork chops. Here is what I did:

  •  2 pork chops
  • 1 granny smith apple peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 shallot
  • ½ cup of hard cider (I used locally made Crispin honey hard cider)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • ancho chili powder

 Cut shallot into quarters, put into aluminum foil (shape like a bowl) and grill until soften

Add apple slices and cook till softened slightly.  Add hard cider and cook down, mean while grill pork till done, remove and put apple shallot glaze over chops.

 

It was good, but I was having a hard time get the cider to reduce on the grill, next time I will try to do this on the stove and may swap out the cider for some dry white wine since it was a little sweet.  Other option might be, no apple, add dried cranberry or other more tart fruit in a hard cider reduction, and something to cut the sweetness, maybe some hot pepper? Not sure.
