Apple-Onion Pork Chops


I got this recipe from Allrecipes, and I really liked it. The apple chunks get very tender and were almost applesauce when I served them. I just piled the toppings on top of the porkchops.

I think it needs a side dish, and I'm guessing you could add some little red potatoes in the pot and they would cook up great. I'll update you if I try it!

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 (4 ounce) lean boneless pork loin chops
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil, divided
  • 2 cups sliced red onion (1/2 inch slices)
  • 1 large tart apple - peeled and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, brown chops in 1 tablespoon oil on both sides over medium-high heat. Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, cook onions and apple in remaining oil over low heat until golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Return pork chops to the pan. Add vinegar; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 18-20 minutes or until meat is tender.

That sounds really good. I haven't cooked with pork in a long time. Thanks for the idea!

I made this last night and liked it. Next time, I'll try the cider vinegar and see how different it tastes. Mine had a lot of liquid. Did yours? I served it with a slotted spoon, which helped. I served mine with a side of asparagus. Thanks!
