You'll never want pork chops any other way once you try this recipe from field editor Doris Heath of Franklin, North Carolina. Doris seasons the juicy chops with a fragrant herb rub and serves them with a scrumptious apple and cherry sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless pork loin chops (1/2 inch thick and 5 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2/3 cup apple juice
  • 1 small red apple, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons dried cherries or cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water

Directions

  1. Sprinkle pork chops with thyme and salt. In a large skillet, cook pork in oil for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Remove and let meat stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in the same skillet, combine the apple juice, apple, cherries and onion. Bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into skillet. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Spoon over pork chops.
