Pork Chop Skillet with Apples

Serves 6

Meaty chops braised in cider with fresh apples and a touch of mustard are 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.

Ratings and Reviews

“I was drawn by the apples with apple juice and coarse-grain mustard. the taste of the sauce was very good! i found that the pork chops cooked more quickly than the recipe. i browned on only one side and then checked the temperature after the 8 minutes of braising. to my surprise, the temp was much higher than the expected 145 degrees. next time, i'll check the temperature after only 4-5 minutes into the braise. i will make this again!!”
