When November rolls in I begin to crave a few things that I do not necessarily want months before. A few examples are: candles burning, cozy blankets, flannel pants, bourbon, and cooking. Is that a strange list?
This girl simply adores cooking in the fall. I think I can chalk this up to summer cooking being super simple and relaxed – hello grilling! In the fall I’m in the kitchen and pouring myself into whatever I decide to whip up (even if whipping up takes about two hours!)
Today I am sharing a favorite recipe with you. This recipe, I believe, screams out “Autumn!”
Oven Baked Bone In Pork Chops with Golden Apples & Red Onions
Just typing this out makes my mouth water. This recipe is very simple and total time from the first chop to plating it is about an hour and fifteen minutes.
What you will need:
4-5 Bone In Pork Chops
3 Golden Delicious Apples cut into quarter inch slices, I leave the peel on.
2 Red/Purple onions sliced
2 Tablespoons of light brown sugar
2 Teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 Tablespoons of water
Salt & Pepper
6-7 teaspoons of butter
Oven safe skillet
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Blot excess liquid from your pork chops and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. I only do this on one side of the meat.
In your large skillet melt about 2 teaspoons of butter – just enough to cover the pan.
Sear the bone in pork chops for about 3 minutes per side in the skillet over medium high heat.
In a bowl: Place you apple slices along with your cinnamon, light brown sugar, and water. Coat the apples by stirring them around. I also like to place them in a Ziplock container, pop the lid on, and shake.
Place the apples and the onions in the pan and cook for about 8 minutes over medium heat.
Remove half of the apples and onions. Place the pork chops on the apples and onions you left in the pan and place about a teaspoon of butter or margarine on each piece of meat. Next, cover the meat with the apples and onions you removed from the pan.
Cover the skillet with an oven safe lid or aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.
When time is up, take the dish out of the oven and let it it for about ten minutes.
Plate this meal with black eyed peas, buttered corn, collard greens, or a starch of your choosing.
I hope you enjoy this meal if you decide to make it. All five of us LOVE it! Five? Yes, Chippy enjoys the bones!
