Chop chop

Another easy weeknight meal for the rotation. It's Friday and these are just pork chops (tasty and easy pork chops, but still), so I'm having a hard time coming up with witty comments. So, I'll leave you with a Simpsons quote:

Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.
Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal:

Pork Chops with Apples and Onions
Adapted from Mad Hungry

  • 6 pork chops (I used boneless loin chops and was pleasantly surprised that they didn't dry out)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 apple, sliced thinly
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 1-2 springs fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 c. apple cider
  1. Heat  olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Season chops liberally with salt and pepper. 
  2. Brown chops in skillet on both sides, in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding the pan. Remove to plate. 
  3. Add apple, onion and rosemary to skillet and stir. Cook until onion begins to soften a bit. Add cider and continue to stir until cider starts to evaporate and thicken. Once it's thickened considerably, add chops back to pan and cook until done. Remember to pick out the rosemary springs before serving!
