Pork cutlets with apples and mustard

all details

There are apples that are especially good for cooking because of their abundantly high acidity. These go particularly well with rich meats such as pork, venison, duck liver and goose liver as well as desserts such as pies and strudel. It's rare to find these cooking-specific apples but they are well worth searching out. Look for 'bramley', 'golden delicious' and 'gravenstein' but as a last resort the 'fuji' will do.
