Autumn Apple Onion Pork Chops

Rated as 4.3 out of 5 Stars

"This is a fairly common autumn dish in Indiana. It always reminds me of local harvest festivals. Crimson and gold leaves under foot, hay rides, the crisp sweet smell of the air...comfort food, pure and simple. There are many variations, but this is the favorite in our home. To be honest, I've never measured the spices before I sat down to write this, so please feel free to adjust to your own tastes."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Combine onion, apple, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar, thyme, and rosemary in a skillet; cook and stir mixture over medium heat until onion is lightly browned and apples are softened, about 15 minutes. Sweeten with brown sugar to taste. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Arrange pork chops in a separate skillet; season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Drizzle 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1 tablespoon olive oil over pork chops. Cook pork chops over medium heat until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  3. Transfer pork chops to a serving dish and top with apple-onion topping. Serve immediately.

The result was a very piney flavored topping that didn't do much good to the pork.

I cooked the chops separately as suggested by another cook in order to make a gravy. I also cut back on the rosemary and thyme after reading the reviews. It was delicious. Will make again.

I'd rate 3.5 if we could give half-stars. The thing is, if you were to use the full amount of rosemary and thyme, I don't think you'd be able to eat it! I used 1 tsp rosemary and just 1/2 tsp ...

My husband raved about this, saying it was a keeper. I plan to also try it with chicken thighs.

I loved it just the way the recipe is!! SO FLAVORFUL!!

This was GOOD! The only changes I made were to modify it for two people in stead of four and I used fresh rosemary. We loved it! Perfect balance of sweet and savory.

Just made less since it's only hubby and I - one apple! Very, very good will definitely make again!

This is delicious. I used thicker pork chops and cooked for about 8 minutes on each side. I also used fresh herbs. This recipe is the first pork chop recipe my husband liked and continues to req...

My husband and I both thought this was a wonderful cold weather comfort dish. Served it with pierogies and a green salad. Plan to make it many more times just as the recipe is presented.
