Pork Chops with Roasted Onions and Apples

Pork Chops with Roasted Onions and Apples with Orzo

This makes a great week night meal and the oven does a lot of the work.  Sprinkle fresh thyme or sage, salt, and pepper over a thick center cut pork chop and sauté in an oven proof skillet.  Slice an apple and small onion and put it in the skillet and sauté along with the pork chop.  You can sprinkle the apples with a little cinnamon and cardamon if you want or thyme.  When the pork is nicely browned on the one side, turn it and gently stir the apples and onions and place the skillet in a 425 oven for 8-10 minutes or until the pork chop is cooked.  Remove the pork chop to a plate and cover with foil to rest while you make a quick pan sauce on the stove.  Add a splash of Calvados, brandy or white wine to pan and a tablespoon of frozen apple juice concentrate (if you have it) and cook for several minutes.  Add any accumulated pork juices to the pan and add some chicken stock or water and continue cooking until the sauce is reduced and slightly thickened.  Serve over orzo, rice, or wide noodles.  Click here for the recipe….
