Ingredients

uncooked lean boneless pork chop(s)

16 oz, center-cut, trimmed of all visible fat

rosemary

1 Tbsp, fresh, chopped

fresh thyme

1 Tbsp, fresh, chopped

table salt

½ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

canola oil

2 tsp

fresh apple(s)

2 medium, Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and sliced

uncooked onion(s)

1 large, thinly sliced

apple juice

cup(s), unsweetened variety

honey mustard

2 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle the chops with the rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chops and cook until browned and cooked through, 4–5 minutes on each side; transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the same skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 8 minutes. Stir in the apple juice and honey mustard; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Return chops to pan and cook, turning once, to heat through, about 2 minutes. Yields 1 chop with 1⁄2 cup apple mixture per serving.
