Serves 4 (serving size: 1 chop, about 1 tablespoon sauce, and 3/4 cup apple mixture)

Pork chops and apples make a perfect pairing for a quick meal that feels like fall.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Pat onions dry with a paper towel. Add onions to pan; cook 2 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring once. Add apple to pan; place in oven. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until onions and apple are tender. Stir in 2 teaspoons butter, thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Step 3

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add pork to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from pan; keep warm. Combine broth and flour in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add broth mixture to pan; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 1 minute or until reduced to 1/4 cup. Stir in vinegar and remaining 1 teaspoon butter. Serve sauce with pork and apple mixture.

GOYA makes a "ham" bouillon- comes as individual powder packs in a small box (like their chicken, and vegetable)

What I did was use a pork gravy mix packet and used veggie stock and a dash of apple juice.

Used your idea for the sauce - Wow - so much better.  Didn't have any craisins - may add them next time.  Thanks for the change -  Kathi

Really really good. The only problem was with the order and timing of the recipe. After reading it several times and having my husband weigh in with his opinion, I switched up the cooking order. Why use 2 pans? Cooked the pork 1st and kept warm. Made the onion and apple mix in the same pan and then proceeded from there. Less clean up and a smoother cooking process.

Its a good recipe, i've made it twice before finding what worked best for us. My grandmother was actually the one who showed me the recipe, and wanted to follow it to the t the first time. The second go around, she was much happier with it. I substituted a small red onion, wedged, for the pearl onions, added some chopped garlic, and added 1/2 cup of craisins. Also, I dipped the porkchops in flour before browning them, and substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth

Went a bit beyond, added more onions and apples, and it was a hit with guests. It is a make again for family or a quick get together.
