Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare a grill for high heat.

    Advertisement
  • While the grill heats, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook until soft. Season with red pepper flakes then add the sliced apple. Stir in the sugar and balsamic vinegar, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until apples are soft and golden.

  • Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Spoon the onions and apples on top of the chops, and top with a slice of Cheddar cheese. Cover the grill, and cook for about 3 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbling.

I approached this recipe with cautious optomism because it sounded a little odd. It was actually very good! I did not have red pepper flakes so I left those out and didn't miss them. This may be obvious but you need to grill these on lightly greased foil or the apples and onions will fall through the grill. You don't want to miss any of them because they are a perfect compliment to the pork chops! Really delicious! Read More

I found it very greasy. If I make it again I would reduce the butter. I would recommend making irish cabbage. Read More

Excellent! I used extra thick-cut chops browning the meat for 5 min. on each side in a non-stick pan. Then I simmered the chops in 2/3 c. dry sherry until done. To finish I put the apple mixture and cheese on the chops under the broiler until the cheese melted. The pork was sooo tender. The only thing I will change the next time I make this-and there will definitely be a next time-is to double the apple mixture. This recipe is a winner! Read More

We made this in a pan adding a little chili pepper to the chops to spice it up. Then we cooked the apples and cheese in the drippings after removing the chops. My husband loved it! Especially with the wonderful autumn apples. Read More

YUM!!! I left out the pepper flakes(maybe next time). After I grilled the chops I brought them inside on a cookie sheet and put the apple mixture/cheese on the chops. I popped them in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese. Less mess than trying to top them on the grill. Read More

very easy to make and a nice blend of flavors. Leftover didn't taste too good the second day though so shouldn't make more than you can finish. Read More

This recipe is perfect. Instead of red pepper I used creole seasoning and added some minced garlic. My friends say it's like an apple pie entree. Read More
