Maple Apple Pork Chops Recipe
- 4 Boneless Pork Chops
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt, or more to taste
- Black Pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon Oil
- 1 Yellow Onion, cut into thin wedges
- 1 Red Onion, cut into thin wedges
- 2 Apples, cored and cut into thin slices
- 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
- 1 teaspoon Dried Rosemary
- 1/2 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/3 cup White Wine
- 1 1/2 cups Chicken Stock
- 1 tablespoon Prepared Yellow Mustard
- 2 tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup, or more to taste
- 1 tablespoon Cold Butter
Brown the pork: Season one side of the chops with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the pork, seasoned side down, into the hot pan. Season the other side while the pork is browning, about 1-2 minutes. Flip and brown the other side. Remove the meat from the pan and cover on a plate.
Cook the onions and apples: Reduce the heat to medium. Add both onions and the apples to the pan. Season with the herbs and salt and pepper. Cook for a minute, then stir in the apple cider vinegar. Cook until starting to soften, about 3 more minutes.
Deglaze the pan: Increase the heat to medium-high. Once the pan is sizzling hot, pour in the white wine, scraping the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil, then cook until the sauce has reduced by half, about 4-5 minutes.
Finish the dish: Stir the mustard and maple syrup into the sauce. Place the pork back into the sauce and finish cooking for 2-3 minutes or until the meat is done. Stir in the butter and serve immediately.
- Use firm apples for best results.
