Ingredients

4x bone-in porkchops (a size that fits all 4 into your pan comfortably)

Salt and pepper

1 ½ tbsp olive oil

2x garlic cloves, smashed

2 tbsp butter, divided

½ small red onion

2 apples (red and green), sliced thin

¼ cup packed brown sugar

⅓ cup vegetable broth

½ tsp salt

4 sprigs fresh thyme

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Remove the porkchops from the fridge about ½ hour before cooking.
  2. When ready to cook, season porkchops generously with salt and pepper on each side.
  3. Add 1 ½ tbsp olive oil to a large high-sided skillet or braiser (that has enough room to cool all of the porkchops together) and heat to medium-high.
  4. When the pan is hot, add the pork chops and cook on one side for 5 minutes without moving them. Reduce the heat to medium and flip, cooking for another 5 minutes. Finally, add in garlic and 1 tbsp butter and cook until done / desired temperature is reached. **Important Note: Cook time will vary depending on the thickness of the porkchop. Use a meat thermometer to measure the temperature to ensure doneness to your liking**
  5. Remove the porkchops to a plate and let rest.
  6. Keep the pan on medium heat and add 1 tbsp butter, the onion and apple slices. Stir and cook for about a minute. Add the brown sugar, vegetable broth, salt, fresh thyme sprigs, apple cider vinegar and a pinch of ground pepper. Stir until the brown sugar is dissolved and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 6-8 minutes on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions and apples are tender.
  7. Add the porkchops back into the pan, basting with some of the juices and apples and cook for a minute or two.
  8. Serve topped with the apples and onions mixture and any leftover sauce.
