Pork chops with apples
This is really tasty and a nice, warm supper for the winter. The recipe is for four pork chops, but since it's just the two of us, I just halved everything and it worked great!
2 T vegetable oil (I used EVOO)
1/2 cup chopped onion 4 (1/2 in. thick pork chops)
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper to taste
2 apples - peeled, cored, and sliced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard (I used regular mustard)
1/8 teaspoon cloves
3/4 cup hot water
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Heat oil in large skillet. Saute onion in oil for 1 minute, or until tender. Remove onion and set aside. Brown pork chops on both sides in oil.
3. Place chops in 8x12 baking dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover the chops with the apples and cooked onion.
4. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard, cloves and water. Pour over chops. Cover and bake in oven for 30-45 minutes.
