In a shallow pan, pour marinade over pork chops and marinate for 1 hour.
Remove the meat from the marinade and drain off the excess. In a skillet over high heat, pan-sear the pork chops on both sides in butter and oil to seal in juices. Sprinkle with a handful of fresh chopped parsley and thyme; season with salt and pepper. They should be well browned on the outside and pink in the center. Transfer the pork chops to a roasting pan, place in a single layer and set aside.
In the same skillet, saute apples in a bit more butter and oil, add more parsley and thyme. Deglaze the pan with brandy. Pour in brown sauce and cider vinegar to create a pan sauce. Spoon the apple sauce over the pork chops. Sprinkle with more chopped herbs and salt and pepper.
Roast in a preheated 325 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. A meat thermometer inserted into the pork should read 155 degrees F.
