Pork Chops with Maple Apples
Ingredients
4
pork loin chops, cut 3/4 inch thick
 
Salt and ground black pepper
1
tablespoon olive oil
2
cooking apples, cored and thinly sliced
1
small red onion, cut into thin wedges
2
1/4
cup apple juice
1/3
cup whipping cream
1
tablespoon pure maple syrup
2
teaspoons snipped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
Directions
  1. Trim excess fat from chops. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork chops. Cook for 8 to 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted through the side into the center registers 145 degrees F, turning once halfway through cooking. Remove from skillet. Cover with foil. Let stand 3 minutes.
  2. Add apples, onion, and garlic to skillet. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add apple juice. Cook about 4 minutes more or until most liquid has evaporated and apples are crisp-tender. Stir together whipping cream, maple syrup, and thyme. Pour over apples in skillet. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through and sauce starts to thicken.
  3. Serve apples mixture over pork chops. Sprinkle with fresh thyme, if desired.
