Cider Pork Chops

Yield 4 servings
If you choose a thinner, less expensive chop, decrease the cooking time. Begin to check for doneness after 30 minutes.


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 (1-inch-thick) bone-in pork chops
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 4 Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup apple cider

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add chops. Seal and shake to coat. Remove chops, and set aside.

  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet; add chops, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned.

  3. Grease a 13- x 9-inch baking dish with remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Place apples in bottom of dish; top with raisins, if desired, and sprinkle with brown sugar. Arrange chops over brown sugar, and drizzle with apple cider.

  4. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until pork chops are done.
