Pork Chops with Sautéed Apples & Pecans

It’s hard not to feel satisfied when you have meat and potatoes on your plate. We kept portions in check in this dish, bumping up the flavor with “extras,” like cheese, nuts, and sweet apples.

Ingredients

You can use any apple in this recipe, but we chose Jonagold apples because we like their sweet flavor and the way they hold their shape when cooked.

Instructions

Season pork with 1/8 tsp. salt and pepper. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork; brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Remove pork to a plate; tent with foil.

Sauté apples and onion in the skillet for 4–5 minutes. Add mustard, cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp. salt, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in apple juice and lemon juice; cook until apples are softened.

Return pork chops and any juices on the plate to the skillet. Cook, uncovered, until pork reaches an internal temperature of 155°. Serve apple mixture over chops; garnish with toasted pecans.

Sear chops until they're browned, about 5 minutes on each side; set chops aside on a plate.
