Pork Chops with Sauteed Apples

Printable Recipe


1 T olive oil
1/2 cup sliced onion
2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 t. dried thyme
4 boneless pork chops (about 5 oz each)
1/2 cup chicken broth

Heat the oil in a skillet, add the onions and saute them for several minutes to soften.  Add the apples and thyme and cook until golden and soft, probably about 5 more minutes.  Remove the onion/apple mixture from pan and set aside.

Season pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper.  Cook the pork chops in the same pan on medium-high heat for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden.  Add the broth and bring to a simmer.  Cook for another 5-6 minutes or until the pork is tender.  Transfer the pork chops to a platter and top with the onion and apple mixture and serve.

Serves 4

The leftovers are delicious on top of a salad.

Holly's Note:
Forgive the photo.  It tastes much better than it looks!

I was not familiar with Robin Miller before I reviewed her book.  But, as we are trying to eat healthier at our house, it sounded like a terrific book, and so far it is.

This was a delicious meal.  It earned serious raves from my husband and a place in our dinner rotation.  I have modified the recipe to suit my tastes better, and I cooked things longer than the recipe recommended, but you can find the original in her book, Robin Takes 5, available here.  You can see my book review here.
