What You'll Need

  • 4 to 6 pork chops, loin or rib, boneless or bone-in, about 3/4-inch thickness
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock, low sodium or unsalted
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large apple, cored and cut into thin wedges
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, optional

How to Make It

  1. Add enough oil to a skillet to coat the bottom of the pan. Place the skillet over medium heat.
  2. When the oil is hot, add the pork chops. Cook for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned on both sides. Place the onion slices on the chops.
  3. In a bowl, combine the chicken broth, dry mustard, salt, allspice, and pepper. Pour over the pork and onion. Bring the chops to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  1. Arrange the apple wedges over the pork chops, cover, and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes longer, or just until apple is tender. If desired sprinkle with parsley just before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Pork Chops With Pears: Stand a firm Bosc pear up and slice vertically around the core. Discard the core and dice the pear pieces. Use two pears, if desired. Replace the apples with the diced pear.
  • Add a sliced fennel bulb to the pork along with the onions.
