Apple Pork Chops

I’m a little overly excited for it to be fall. I love absolutely everything about the season: the weather, the clothes, the colors of the leaves…  but the food is something truly special. All summer I avoid using my stove for fear of heating up the house, but as the temperatures fall, the cooking options grow to glorious numbers.  For this recipe I combine one of fall’s signature ingredients, apples, and boneless pork chops to create a truly special (and easy!) fall dish.


2 Boneless pork chops
2 Apples (I used Gala apples)
1 Small onion
1 Tbls unsalted butter
1 Tbls brown sugar
Salt and pepper


Peel outside layer from onion and slice thin. Melt butter in a large, heavy pan (I used a cast iron skillet), and add onions. Saute onions until they become transparent and just start to brown, stirring occasionally to keep from burning.

Meanwhile, peel and slice apples into wedges. Add apples to the pan and saute for 2 minutes.

Move apples and onions to the side and add pork chops. Leave chops for 4 minutes, moving the apples and onions around occasionally.

After 4 minutes, turn pork chops over and cover with apples and onions. Sprinkle brown sugar over the whole lot and cook another 4 minutes. Season to taste and serve.
