Ingredients

1 lb boneless pork roast, sliced thinly
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. Marsala or Madeira wine
1/4 c. lemon juice mixed with 1/4 c. water
2 Granny Smith apples

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degress.

Peel and ball the apples and place in a bowl with the wine, lemon and water.

Dredge the pork slices in flour, then saute in butter. When the juices begin to emerge on the upper side (after about 3 minutes), turn the pork slices and saute for an additional 3 minutes.

Remove pork from skillet and place in a glass baking dish. Deglaze the pan juices with the wine, lemon juice, water and apples, scraping to incorporate any bits of meat stuck to the pan.

Pour the sauce over the pork slices and place in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
