• 4 pork chops (loin or shoulder, bone-in)
  • Salt and ground black pepper

  • 1 cup white wine

Ready In 45 Minutes

Servings: 4

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

  • Season the chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Saut the pork chops in hot oil for 5 minutes on each side until browned.
  • Length: 5 minutes

Step 2

  • Transfer the chops to a warm plate.

Step 3

  • Swirl the butter into the pan, and add the onion and apples. Saut until the onion slices are lightly caramelized and the apples have begun to soften, about 8 minutes.
  • Length: 8 minutes

Step 4

  • Stir in the wine or other liquid. Return chops to the pan.

Step 5

  • Cook until the pork is tender, about 15 more minutes (depending on the size of the chops), turning halfway through and covering the chops with the apple mixture.
  • Length: 15 minutes

Step 6

  • Serve the chops over rice or mashed potatoes with a large spoonful of the apple-onion mixture over the top.

Step 7

  • Easy suggestion: replace the onion with leeks or add a sliced potato. You can deglaze the pan with beer, cider, chicken broth, or even water.
