I start with a thicker cut pork chop with the bone-in, but of course you can use whatever cut of pork chop or even pork tenderloin that you like. No hard and fast rules where the meat is concerned, just be sure it is a cut of meat that you like.

I add it to my skillet with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and sear it over medium-high heat.

Then I sliced a few apples and a sweet onion and tossed in with skillet with my pork chops and reduced the heat to medium. Oh the smell of all that deliciousness cooking in my kitchen. I wish I could just bottle it up!

I cooked the medley until the pork chops were cooked all the way through and juices ran clear when I pierced a pork chop with a fork. About the same time, the apples and onions were tender crisp. What that means is that the apples were still crisp and juicy when you bite into them, but were tender enough to cut with a fork.

These Pork Chops with Apples and Onions are a staple meal around my house throughout the fall. The flavors just work perfectly together and you can’t beat that in my book! And, if you have friends or family who are eating Paleo or another gluten or grain-free lifestyle, then this is a great recipe to make for them as well!

    Look forward to trying this. I went apple shopping this weekend and got a ton, but sadly the ones listed weren’t for sale here. I make porkchops/onion/apples but mine are different so I am looking forward to s firmer apple/onion bite. Mine turn to more smothered. Thanks for sharing. Maybe these apples will spread out each year until they are all over the US sometime. Never know!
