Let's cook something savory with apples. I just happened to have pork chops and thought apples might add a little more flavor to the dish. Here it is and I hope you like it.
Yes, there is more raw meat but hey it is pork chops!
Season chops on both sides with salt and pepper.
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a skillet.
Add onions and cook until tender. Then remove and set aside.
Meantime, core the apple. I used a Granny Smith for this recipe.
Peel and chop the apple.
Add chops to hot oil and brown on both sides.
When browned, remove and put into a baking dish. Place the cooked onion and chopped apples on top of each chop. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, mustard, cloves, water and wine.
Pour over chops. Cover and bake for 30 to 45 minutes in a preheated oven at 375 degrees.
