This time of year I like to serve sautéed apples with pork roast. They make a delicious and easy side dish. I love Red Delicious apples and eat one as a snack almost every day. So, of course I have them on hand and use them for this dish. Feel free to use a different kind of apple if you like. I also love Rome Beauty apples, they sauté well and are my favorite for baking. I use the Rome Beauties to make a lovely rustic apple tart in the fall. Sometime between now and Thanksgiving I will share the tart recipe with you.
Hope you enjoy these yummy apples.
