My family has used apples for many fabulous dishes, including this pork chop recipe from my grandmother that uses apples, apple butter and apple cider. I adapted the meal for two. My boyfriend loves it served with a baked sweet potato and a green salad. —Heather Kenney, Arlington, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons apple butter
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 boneless butterflied pork chops (6 ounces each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large tart apple, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup apple cider or juice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine the apple butter, vinegar, mustard and rosemary. Flatten pork chops to 1/2-in. thickness; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush with apple butter mixture.
  2. Combine apple and onion; place over 1 side of each pork chop. Fold other side of pork over filling and secure with toothpicks.
  3. In a small ovenproof skillet, brown chops in butter on each side, 3-4 minutes. Add cider.
  4. Bake, uncovered, until apples and onions are tender and a thermometer reads 145°, 15-20 minutes. Remove chops and keep warm. Bring pan juices to a boil; cook until reduced by half. Discard toothpicks. Serve pork with sauce.
