Pork Chops with Glazed Apple & Onion

Pin It
This is a quick and easy recipe that is great in the Autumn when apples are fresh and aplenty. I found this recipe in "Better Homes & Garden: Meals Made Easy With Grey Poupon Mustard".  It cooks up in one pan so no need to dirty too many dishes. 


Ingredients Needed:
4 pork lion chops, cut 3/4 inch thick
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 large apple, sliced
1/2 cup Grey Poupon Honey Mustard
1/4 cup apple juice


In large skillet, over meidum-high heat, brown pork chops on both sides in hot oil. Reduce heat to medium, cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until chops are done. Remove to serving platter & keep warm.


In same skillet, over medium-high heat cook onion in pan drippings for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in apple; cook for 5 minutes more or until onion and apple are tender. 


Stir in mustard and apple juice; heat through. *Spoon sauce over chops.


*In the end, I added the chops back to the skillet and just heated them up a bit and let them soak in the juices while warming.*


** Several different apples can be used. My favorites are Gala, HoneyCrisp, WineSap & Pink Lady.  I have also used Red Delicious & Yellow Delicious as well. That made a very pretty dish. **


This recipe is easy and tasty. I always increase the apples, onions, honey mustard & apple juice to make a double serving. The extra I use as a gravy base on the rice I serve with it. Its very good.  I served this with  long grain brown rice, green beans and corn on the cob.  Enjoy the pictures!
