Mustardy Pork Chops with Apples and Onions

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serving Size: 4


  • Olive Oil
  • 4 Boneless pork chops (about 1-1/4 lbs., thin sliced), salted & peppered
  • 1 Onion, large, sliced
  • 1 Apple, peeled and slivered to same width as the onions
  • 2 TBSP Mustard (grainy)
  • 2 TBSP Cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider, water or apple juice


  1. Add the oil to a large skillet (that has a lid) over medium-high heat. Brown the pork chops, about 2 minutes on each side. (Do not cook through.)
  2. Remove them from the pan and turn the heat to medium-low. Add a little more oil, if necessary, then add the onions and apples and cook 5-7 minutes, until they have wilted.
  3. Add the mustard, vinegar and juice to the pain, scraping up any brown pork bits from the bottom and bringing to a boil for about 1 minute.
  4. Add the pork chops back to the pain, nestling them with the onions and apples; reduce to simmer. Cover and cook another 2 minutes, until chops have cooked through. If pan sauce is liquidy, remove chops and boil sauce for another minute.
