I bought a BIG package of Pork Chops at Costco and then thought…Hmmm now what am I going to do with all of these?? Well I was fortunate enough to find a WONDERFUl recipe on “My Kitchen Cafe” website. I love her blog, so many yummy things! Instead of serving these over Mashed Potatoes I like serving them with Couscous or rice. These just fall off the bone with so much amazing flavor. SO GOOD!!
4-5 bone-in pork loin chops (at least 1/2-inch thick)
2-3 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced about 1/4-inch thick
1-2 yellow onions, 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. 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 three 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 get tender (and not dry out).
Serve each pork chop with Couscous and topped with the apples and onions.
