IT Guy enjoys going to a certain old-timey-type-country-store-type restaurant to eat from time to time. Can I say Cracker Barrel on here? Whatever. He likes it. So when he can pull me out of my OWN kitchen long enough, we'll saunter down there and enjoy their food. And you know how it is....they serve you tons of stuff. And so many choices! Of course, one of his favorites is their country fried steak. He'd probably say it doesn't hold a candle to mine...he's that kind of guy. And one of the sides he almost always gets is their fried apples. And I have to admit, they're pretty tasty. So the other day, when we went to my brother's house for Mother's Day dinner, I decided to take fried apples to go along with the pork roast my SIL was serving. So yeah....YUM! These were so good....it was like eating apple pie without the crust. They were perfect! We loved them....you've GOT to try them. And to make it even more appealing...they were so easy! And something you just don't see everyday as a side dish. Go ahead and make them...you know you want to!!
8 golden delicious apples
½ cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
¼ cup butter (1/2 stick)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
½ cup water
3 tablespoons flour (I used Wondra)
Wash and slice apples then set aside.
In a large skillet, melt butter. Add sugars and cinnamon. Stir until combined then add sliced apples. Stir to coat. Cover skillet and allow apples to cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes or until soft, stirring once or twice. Remove apples from skillet with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl.
Mix water and flour together then pour into juices in the skillet. Heat until bubbly and thick then pour over apples in bowl. Stir gently to coat then transfer to a serving bowl.
