4 bone-in pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 7 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Hot cooked rice, optional
Apple slices, optional
Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, brown pork chops in butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the apple juice; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat juices run clear.
Remove to a serving platter and keep warm. Add onion and mustard to skillet. Cook, uncovered, on low for 4-5 minutes or until heated through. Spoon over chops. Serve with rice and garnish with apples if desired.
