Apple Pork Chops
This 6 ingredient apple pork chops recipe is the best pork I've ever eaten! These apple pork chops are the perfect fall meal for a busy weeknight.
- 3 tablespoons butter divided use
- 4 bone in pork chops approximately 5-6 ounces each
- 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons apple cider divided use
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
- 3 apples cored and thinly sliced
- salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large skillet melt 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Season the pork generously with salt and pepper; cook for 6 minutes on each side or until deep golden brown.
Add 1/2 cup of cider to the pan and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes. The bake time depends on the thickness of your chops and your desired level of doneness. I like my pork medium well and bake it for 10 minutes, if you prefer well done, bake for 15 minutes.
While the pork is in the oven, In another skillet, cook the apples in the remaining butter over medium-high for 5 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of apple cider, turn the heat to high and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Season the apples with salt to taste.
After the pan comes out of the oven transfer the pork to a plate. Whisk the mustard and sage into the cider drippings; season to taste with salt and pepper. Place the apples on the plate with the pork and pour the sauce over the top. Serve.
