Apple-y Braised Pork Chops Recipe

Apple-y Braised Pork Chops

All Rights Reserved


This was inspired by a recipe for Cider-Braised Pork Chops in the October/November of Cook's Country Magazine. My version is a bit simpler and, I think, tastier. If you don't have a dutch oven, a heavy saucepan with tight-fitting lid works too. Or, try this in your crock pot and report back.
  • 1 apple, not too starchy
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • chicken stock, maybe 3 cups (enough to cover the lot in the pot)
  • 2 pinches dried thyme
  • 2 pinches Kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 boneless pork chops (another cut would be fine, I think)

How to make Apple-y Braised Pork Chops

  1. Preheat oven to 300º F.
  2. Rinse meat and pat dry. Heat a little bit of vegetable oil in a dutch oven (or oven-safe saucepan) over medium heat.
  3. Brown the meat on both sides, then add onion, apple, garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, and vinegar. Add chicken stock to cover.
  4. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and place in the oven.
  5. Cook until meat is very, very tender, about 1½ hours.
  6. To serve, spoon delicious apple-and-onion sauce over pork chops, possibly alongside buttered egg noodles and steamed green beans.
  7. Download the recipe @ food. according to me.
