Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix salt and black pepper together; season both sides of each pork chop.

  • Press both sides of apple slices into brown sugar to coat them.

  • Cook bacon in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels, reserving bacon grease in the skillet.

  • Mix 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter into the reserved bacon grease over medium heat; cook the brown sugar-coated apple slices until apples are tender and glazed, about 5 minutes. Transfer glazed apples to a plate in a single layer leaving room between each apple.

  • Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter to the skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork chops, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a plate.

  • Mix Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Stock, lemon juice, and 1/2 of the green onions into the skillet mixture; bring liquid to a simmer. Check sauce for seasoning; add salt to taste, if desired.

  • Place the browned pork chops in the skillet and simmer in the sauce until pork chops are cooked through, about 20 minutes.

  • Serve topped with 4 glazed apple slices per chop. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon; spoon a generous amount of the pan sauce over top. Finish with a sprinkle of green onions.

Cook's Note:

I served the pork chops with Cheddar couscous using the remaining Swanson(R) Unsalted Chicken Stock.

The recipe was awesome as is. The instructions are a little unorganized at first, but next time I will have a clearer idea of what to do when. Next time I will make much more sauce, as it was outstanding mixed with the rice that I served along with it. We will definitely make this again, but I will just make a much bigger batch of it!

This is a recipe I created for Swanson but I forgot to mention...please use a non stick skillet or you'll have a hard time with the bacon sticking and the brown sugar from the apples will burn. While I'm here I'll give it 5 Stars...lol! Read More

It turned out good & tasted pretty good. My sister who was over for dinner said it was scrumptious. I Don't know if I'd make it again though it was a bit challenging for my cooking experience. Also I prepared the recipe as directed with 3 exceptions. 1. I didn't use Swanson stock I used a chicken bouillon cube. 2. Didn't have a Braeburn a apple so I used a Fuji apple. 3. I didn't have any green onions so I used a small sweet yellow onion diced. One more thing I used applewood smoked bacon?? Read More

My husband really liked this. I didn't change a thing. No problem with sticking pans or not sticking apples. I even used a cast iron skillet! SuzieQ-The apples simmer so that the flavor of the brown sugar and the apples infuse the juices as well as lightly coating the apples. Read More

An awesome recipe! So flavorful and moist. Made teeny tiny changes. I used thicker cut pork chops that I brined in apple juice with salt pepper and crushed garlic overnight I added NO sugar to the apple but I added about 1/8th teaspoon of cinnamon. Even though I cooked the bacon it really did not need it for additional flavor. Topped with fresh flat leaf parsley instead of green onions. I will make this again without the bacon or sugar. Thank you for the delicious recipe. Read More
