My family has used apples for many great dishes, including this pork chop recipe from my grandmother that I adapted for two. It uses apples, apple butter and apple cider. My boyfriend loves it served with a baked sweet potato and green salad. —Heather Kenney, Arlington, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons apple butter
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary

  • 1 large tart apple, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the apple butter, vinegar, mustard and rosemary. Flatten pork chops to 1/2-in. thickness; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush with apple butter mixture.
Combine apple and onion; place over one side of each pork chop. Fold other side of pork over filling and secure with toothpicks.
In a small ovenproof skillet, brown chops in butter for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Add cider.

"The flavor combination was fantastic. I doubled the recipe to feed my family and everyone loved it. The local butcher butterflied the pork chops for me. Thank you."
