I suggest cooking a very quick and easy meal of pork chops, yellow rice and frozen sweet peas. Apples pair very well with them. It will be hard for you to believe how easy and DELICIOUS the dish is!
- 4 extra lean pork chops (seasoned with salt and pepper)
- 2 apples (cored, cut into eighths)
- 1 medium onion (sliced)
- 2 tbsp. of butter
- 4 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. Cinnamon (or more to taste)
- 1 tea. nutmeg
- 6 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Heat 4 tbsp of olive oil in an ovenproof skillet. Add seasoned pork chops and braise 2-3 mins on either side. Remove from pan and add the remaining 2 tbsp of oil and scrape the bits from the pan.
Add onions and saute for 4 mins. Add apples, sugar and spices and continue cooking for an additional 6 mins.
Remove from heat. Add butter and toss. Push the mixture aside and return chops to the pan.
Top the chops with the apple mixture and place the skillet in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
