  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon OTO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup of OTO Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Cook garlic and shallots in EVOO in a saucepan until softened. Add red wine and Red Apple Vinegar and boil until reduced, about 8-10 minutes. Add chicken and beef/veal stock and reduce to about 1¼ cups, about 15-20 minutes.

Peel apple and cut into small dice. In a medium sauté pan, sauté apple and raisins in butter until apple is golden brown, but not falling apart, about 2-3 minutes. Add vinegar/stock sauce and simmer for 1 minute. Salt and pepper if necessary. Spoon over pork chops, pork tenderloin, chicken, or duck.
