I’m a huge fan of pork, and is always looking for new ways to enjoy one of my favorite meats. I came across various recipes for pork chops but none of them yielded the results I was looking for.
So I decided to experiment and combine the good parts of a few of those recipes, and Voila!
The pork chops are moist, very tender and absolutely delicious. Your whole family will love this.
- 4 bone-in pork loin chops (at least 1/2-inch thick)
- 2-3 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced about 1/4-inch thick (I used 3)
- 1 large white onion, sliced
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
- Place the onion slices in an even layer over the bottom of the dish. Top the onion slices with the apples. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the apples and onions.
- Season the pork chops generously on both sides with salt and pepper.
- Lightly sear pork chops on both sides and arrange the pork chops in a single layer on top of the apples and onions.
- Cover the dish tightly with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours. Do not open the oven and lift the foil – the pork chops, apples and onions need to be tightly covered the whole time to work their magic (and not dry out).
- Serve each pork chop with a side of your choice (I used stir fried vegetables) and topped with the apples and onions.
