Pork Chops with Apples

These moist tender chops get delicious flavor from Dijon mustard, onions and apple slices. Or try replacing the apples with pineapple rings for an appealing variation. I like to serve mashed sweet potatoes with this main course, along with a simple salad.

    This recipe was amazing! I served it with a side of homemade mac 'n' cheese made from the basics (butter, flour, milk, lots of my favorite cheeses with salt and pepper of course, finished with fresh shredded parm and fresh parsley. Only differences were, I made a smaller portion (fitting to my requirements), I used a mandolin for my apple instead of slices and I tossed my apple and onion in a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Then for my two chops, before cooking, I tossed in a blend of, olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, Italian seasoning, half lemon, and teaspoon rice wine vinegar. Then I followed everything else as is. This was amazing tonight! I'm very glad to have used this recipe. Thanks for sharing it!

    Great recipe - left out the mustard as we are not a fan and subbed gala apples. Have already made it twice.

    Wow - so good - I'm not usually a pork chop fan but the flavoring of this dish had us going back for seconds. I appreciated that it was simple to make and most ingredients already on-hand. The only change I made was to use all Fuji red apple since I didn't have green apple on-hand.

    I didn't have Dijon Mustard on hand, so I used 1 Tbsp yellow, and 1 Tbsp spicy. I used boneless pork chops and only one onion. I cooked the apples and onion separately, to speed up cooking time. I also added 1 Tbsp brown sugar to the apple/onion mixture along with some butter to add a little sweet caramelization at the end. Everything turned out wonderfully delicious, and I didn?t have any leftover pork chops because my husband ate the extra one!

    The ultimate test: my kids loved it, except for the mustard hater. He suggested I make it again and leave the mustard off of his. :)
