Pork Chop Skillet with Apples Recipe

Pork Chop Skillet with Apples

Serves 6

Fruit is a favorite partner with pork, and these braised chops feature fresh apples. A spark of mustard brings all the flavors together for an easy autumn-inspired skillet supper. Serve with mashed potatoes.


  • 6 3/4-inch thick pork chops
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups apple cider OR juice
  • 1/3 cup coarse-grained mustard
  • 3 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced, about 1/2-inch thick
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp water, chicken stock or Riesling wine
  • Optional:
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup green onions, sliced


  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork chops and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Combine apple cider and mustard; pour over pork chops. Cover and simmer for 8 minutes. Add apples (and optional raisins and green onions).
  3. Cover; cook 5 to 10 minutes longer until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145°F.
  4. Place pork chops and apples on serving platter; keep warm.
  5. Stir together cornstarch and water or other liquid. Stir into pan juices; stir until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Continue to boil to reduce sauce, as desired. Season to taste.
