4 pork chops
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Michigan apples, thinly sliced
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon (optional for extra flavor)
Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
Season the pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear them until golden brown on both sides. Remove from the pan and set aside.
In the same pan, melt butter and add the sliced apples. Cook until they are caramelized and tender. Sprinkle brown sugar over the apples and continue cooking until the sugar is caramelized.
Pour in the apple cider and let it simmer until slightly reduced.
Add the heavy cream to the pan and stir to combine. Let the sauce simmer and thicken.
Return the pork chops to the pan, spooning some of the sauce. Cook for a few more minutes until the pork is cooked through.
Serve the pork chops topped with the apple cider cream sauce and caramelized apples. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired. Enjoy!
