How To Make pork chops with caramelized apples

  • 1
    Pat chops dry. In small bowl mix together thyme, pepper and salt; season both sides of chops; set aside. In large heavy skillet melt the butter with the sugar over moderately high heat; add the apples and sauté for 30-40 minutes, until apples begin to brown. Turn apples, cook for 5 minutes more, until they are golden brown and the sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and keep warm. Heat another heavy skillet over medium-high heat, brush with a little vegetable oil. Add chops and brown on onside, about 4 minutes; turn and brown other side, 4 minutes more. Keep turning chops every couple of minutes until just done (internal temperature will reach 155 degrees F). Total cooking time for chops will be around 14-18 minutes. Serve chops with apples.
