Apple Pork Chops

A rich, special-occasion dish. These chops should not be overcooked or they will be dry. You can use pork chops with or without the bone.


  • 4 small pork chops, ½-inch thick
  • (about 1½ pounds with the bone or 1 pound boneless)
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 2 cups sliced apples
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ cup apple juice


1 Season the chops with salt and pepper; dredge lightly in flour.
2 In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops. Cook 4 minutes per side or until juices run clear when a small slit is cut in the meat. Remove from skillet.
3 Add the onion and cook until slightly softened, about 1 minute, add the apples and thyme; cook until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add the apple juice; return the pork chops to the skillet, and cook, turning the chops once, until sauce has thickened.
