For the zestiest flavor, rub the chops with the brown sugar mixture the night before, and let them chill overnight.

How to Make It

Step 1

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).

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

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.

I made this tonight and we all loved it! I didn't have time to marinate the night before but would love to try that next time. Next time I will add an extra apple and check my pork chops earlier.

Great Quick Dinner!

These had awesome flavor..I did add the extra apple..but agree with the prior review - watch the cooking time as the chops and veggies were overdone with the stated cooking time/temp

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.

Easy as Pork Chops!

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!

Really good

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.  

A Winner!

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.
