  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
Peppered Apples:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 sweet-tart apples (such as Cortland or Spartan), peeled and cut in 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey

Method

Peppered Apples: In skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook apples, stirring often, until tendercrisp, about 4 minutes. Stir in cider and honey; reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in pepper and salt. Set aside and keep warm.

Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook chops, in batches and turning once, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to plate; keep warm.
