4 servings servings
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 40 min
- 4 pork chops (loin or shoulder, bone-in)
- 1 tbs olive oil or sunflower oil
- 2 tbs unsalted butter
- 1 large white onion, sliced
- 3 cups apples (2 to 3 apples), cored and sliced
- 1 cup white wine
- ground black pepper
- 1. Season the chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Sauté the pork chops in hot oil for 5 minutes on each side until browned. Transfer the chops to a warm plate.
- 2. Swirl the butter into the pan, and add the onion and apples. Sauté until the onion slices are lightly caramelized and the apples have begun to soften, about 8 minutes.
- 3. Stir in the wine or other liquid. Return chops to the pan.
- 4. Cook until the pork is tender, about 15 more minutes (depending on the size of the chops), turning halfway through and covering the chops with the apple mixture.
- 5. Serve the chops over rice or mashed potatoes with a large spoonful of the apple-onion mixture over the top.
- 6. Easy suggestion: replace the onion with leeks or add a sliced potato. You can deglaze the pan with beer, cider, chicken broth, or even water.
