I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest several months ago and, having pork chops on hand, decided to give it a try. It has quickly become one of our go-to, quick and easy weeknight recipes.
Caramelized Apple Pork Chops
4 boneless pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Salt and black pepper to taste
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
2 medium tart apples, cored and cut in 1/8" slices
1 small sweet onion, sliced thin
Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Season chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Saute chops, 5-6 minutes, turning occasionally, until both sides are evenly browned. Remove chops from pan; keep warm.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add butter to skillet; stir in brown sugar mixture, onion and apples. Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes or just until apples are tender.
Remove apple mix with a spoon and arrange on top of chops; serve warm.
