  • 4 7-8 ounce bone-in pork center-cut rib chops, trimmed

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 2 firm cooking apples, cut into 1/4-inch slices

  • 1 large onion, cut into thin wedges

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ cup dry white wine

  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 - 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • Hot cooked brown rice (optional)

  • Fresh thyme leaves (optional)


  1. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. Coat a 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium-high. Add meat; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until browned on both sides. Remove from skillet; keep warm.

  2. In skillet combine apples, onion, and garlic. Cook over medium-high 6 to 8 minutes or until apples are golden, stirring occasionally. Carefully add wine; cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring to scrape up crusty brown bits. Stir in broth, mustard, and butter. Return meat to skillet.
