1 Gala apple (8 to 9 oz.), cut into 1/2-inch wedges
1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
Vegetable cooking spray
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°. Stir together first 5 ingredients, 1 Tbsp. brown sugar, 1 tsp. rosemary, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper in a small bowl. Rub each pork chop with 1/2 tsp. olive oil; rub both sides of each pork chop with brown sugar mixture (about 2 tsp. on each chop).
Whisk together apple cider vinegar and remaining 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, 1 tsp. rosemary, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper in a small bowl; slowly whisk in remaining 3 Tbsp. olive oil until blended. Place apples, Brussels sprouts, and 1/4 cup vinegar mixture in a large bowl, and toss to coat.
Place pork chops in center of a lightly greased (with cooking spray) heavy-duty aluminum foil-lined sheet pan; place apple mixture around pork chops.
Bake at 425° for 12 minutes; turn pork chops over, and bake 10 to 14 minutes more or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 140°. Transfer pork chops to a serving platter, and cover with foil to keep warm. Stir apple mixture in sheet pan, and spread into an even layer.
Increase oven temperature to broil, and broil apple mixture 3 to 4 minutes or until browned and slightly charred. Transfer apple mixture to a medium bowl. Toss together apple mixture and remaining vinegar mixture. Season with kosher salt, and serve with pork chops.
This is a keeper, moist and full of flavor. Added extra apples to the mix, and, as husband did not read all the instructions, added all the oil/spice & brussels sprouts/apple mixture to the pan at the beginning. The brussels sprouts/apple mixture was done when the pork chops were ready so did not need to broil.
This was amazing! I'm a college student with no prior cooking experience and this was really easy to make! The Brussels sprouts' sweetness is such a nice combination with the tangy apple slices and the spices marinated in the 'chops! This is definitely one of the most easiest thing that I can make!The Brussels sprouts and apples turned brown/charred in the oven while I was baking the pork chops, so there may not need to broil it afterwards, but I did it and it was still delicious!
Enjoyed this! I heeded other's warning and watched the pork and pulled it out after about 22 mins. (12 mins. on one side, then 10 on the other). I like my Brussels sprouts really charred so I did broil, but were finished very quickly, maybe 2 mins. Will definitely make again.
Loved this dinner! Easy, delicious, & fairly quick. The spiciness of the pork chops goes so well with the sweet/tart of the apple/sprouts. My chops were only 1/2 inch thick so I reduced the cooking time. Also sliced the apples not as thick and par-cooked the sprouts( they were frozen so I microwaved them first for 3 min) so everything came out at the same time. Made it so easy! Bonus- clean up was a breeze- since you bake everything on a foil lined pan.
