2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
12g minced ginger
5g minced garlic
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp salt, plus extra if required

60ml white wine
150g yellow onions, sliced 0.5cm thick
250g tart apples, cored and sliced 0.5cm thick

1) Put the chops in a resealable plastic bag, and add the apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp of the olive oil, the ginger, garlic, lemon juice and 1 tsp of both the salt and pepper. Marinate for 30 mins.

5) Remove the chops from the oven and add to the apple mixture. Serve hot with your choice of vegetables or rice.
