Skillet Pork Chops with Apples & Onion

Simple recipes that land on the table fast are lifesavers. I serve skillet pork chops with veggies and, when my husband lobbies, cornbread stuffing. —Tracey Karst, Ponderay, Idaho

    This was an easy recipe. I cooked the onions and apples for 10 minutes before I put the pork back into the pan. I did not have balsamic vinegar, so I added 1/2 cup apple cider instead of the water and vinegar. My husband and I really liked it.

    I really liked this, but my 9 year old did not care for it. Next time I would cook the onions and apples a little by themselves before adding the pork. I think it became overcooked and a bit tough. And I just realized I used balsamic vinegar instead of vinaigrette!

    i liked the apples and onions combination. Balsamic vinaigrette was a little over-powering, will try less of it next time or substitute something else.

    The pork was perfect in this, tender and flavorful. The apples took on too much of the vinegar flavor though. I loved that this was a one pot dish too - less dishes rocks!!

    Really liked these pork chops! Nice flavor. I made my own balsamic vinaigrette. Chops were tender and the balsamic glazed apples and onions were perfect.

    Not a favorite - the balsamic vinaigrette is overpowering in this dish.

    very tasty! ...I like softer apples, so added more water at the end of cooking to steam them and make them softer. I also added a little bit (about 1 teaspoon) of sugar sprinkled over the apples while cooking.
