Prep: 1. Slice onion and apples. Make: 1. Trim chops of excess fat. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper on both sides. 2. Heat a large skillet over high heat and then add in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. 3. Lay in pork chops and don't move them for a few minutes, to ensure a good sear forms. 4. Turn and brown on second side for a total of about 8 minutes. Remove chops to a plate. 5. In the same skillet, heat remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. 6. Add onion and apples. Sauté until onion slices are caramelized and apples have begun to soften, about 8 minutes. 7. Stir in chicken broth and return chops to pan. 8. Cook until pork is tender, about 5-10 more minutes (depending on size of chops), turning halfway through and covering the chops with the apple mixture. If apple mixture needs thickening, remove chops to plate again and simmer the mixture on high for a few minutes to reduce. 9. Serve chops with a large spoonful of the apple-onion mixture over the top.
Make it your own by using beer, or your favorite cider, instead of chicken broth! If you want to splurge a little cook the apples and onions in butter.
