How to make it

  • Sprinkle freshly cracked pepper on one side of pork chops and a little of the thyme and set aside on a plate.
  • Slice onion thinly while skillet heats up on medium heat.
  • Drizzle maybe 1 tablespoon olive oil into hot skillet and add onions.
  • Cook for 4-6 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • While onions cooking, mince up garlic and set aside.
  • Once onions are cooked and slightly browned, take out of skillet and put in bowl and set aside.
  • Put skillet back on heat, add a little olive oil and a teeny amount of butter and place your pork chops (spiced side down into hot skillet. Cook 3 minutes on each side.
  • If you chops are thicker than 3/4 inches, you will have to cook them longer.
  • Chops are done when they have just lost their pinkish color. They will continue to cook a bit once out of the skillet.
  • Sprinkle salt, pepper and additional thyme on the other side of unseasoned chops.
  • While chops are cooking, peel and slice thinly your apple.
  • Turn chops and let brown on the other side.
  • Remove chops onto a plate.
  • Add apple to skillet and let brown, stirring frequently, let cook for 3-5 minutes, add a little butter if you have to. Add garlic and let cook ONE minute only, you do not wish to burn the garlic.
  • Add port wine carefully to skillet, scrape bottom to remove brown bits. Add onions back to skillet. Let cook for two more minutes.
  • Add bullion paste, and water and let reduce by a half. Add one small pat of butter to remaining sauce...taste for any need of salt or pepper.
  • Pour mixture over your pork chops and dinner is ready.
  • I was in such a hurry to eat this amazing dinner, I didn't take a photo which is unusual for me.... :-) - photo is from deliaonline, but looks very close to what my dinner looked like before I chowed down.

    Made a big batch of this the other night, and it was delicious! I had 2 chops leftover, sliced them up thin and served it over rice with the leftover port wine sauce over the top.

    Does it matter if it is bone-in or butterfly chops?

    This sounds very similar to a chop dish I had with fig instead of apple at Carrabba's. I just have to try this, I know I'd love it! Thanks!
