Dinner Recipes for Fall
I love fall and the first thing I think about doing when chilly weather hits is when can I get to the apple orchard! I love the cider donuts hot out of the grease and coated in cinnamon sugar, the cool crisp air, and the bushels and bushels of apples from the orchard!
That crisp air has you feeling like you need a delicious hot comfort meal. And, what better meat to use with apples and onions than pork? So, to celebrate fall, I decided to go ahead and make this classic dish for dinner and I used my very favorite Honeycrisp apple!
How to make Skillet Pork Chops with Apples and Onions
Just a few simple ingredients and a whole lot of flavor! Start with your seasoned pork chops. Season your meat and place in hot skillet with oil. Sear 3-4 minutes on each side, then remove from skillet and set aside.
Saute your onions and apples. Season with salt, pepper, rosemary, and sage. Bring to a simmer.
Add stock mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer. Then add pork chops back to skillet and simmer 3-4 minutes longer, until pork chops are cooked through.
