Simple Pork Chops With Apples
- 4 to 6 pork chops, loin or rib, boneless or bone-in, about 3/4-inch thickness
- 1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 3/4 cup chicken stock, low sodium or unsalted
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 large apple, cored and cut into thin wedges
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, optional
- Add enough oil to a skillet to coat the bottom of the pan. Place the skillet over medium heat.
- When the oil is hot, add the pork chops. Cook for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned on both sides. Place the onion slices on the chops.
- In a bowl, combine the chicken broth, dry mustard, salt, allspice, and pepper. Pour over the pork and onion. Bring the chops to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes.
- Arrange the apple wedges over the pork chops, cover, and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes longer, or just until apple is tender. If desired sprinkle with parsley just before serving.
- Pork Chops With Pears: Stand a firm Bosc pear up and slice vertically around the core. Discard the core and dice the pear pieces. Use two pears, if desired. Replace the apples with the diced pear.
- Add a sliced fennel bulb to the pork along with the onions.
