Pork Chop with Cider Gravy, Sauteed Apples, and Onions

This meal will make you an official Walton - a member of a large farm family.

Total Time:
35 min
20 min
15 min

4 servings


Season the chop with salt and pepper. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the EVOO in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chop until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side, tenting loosely with foil once you turn the chop. Remove the cooked chop to a plate and cover to keep warm. Add the remaining EVOO and the onions and apples. Season with salt, pepper, and the thyme and cook until just tender, 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Douse with juice of the 1/2 lemon and remove to the plate with the chop.

Add 1 tablespoon of the butter to the skillet and when it melts, whisk in the flour. Cook for 1 minute, stirring, then whisk in the cider and stock. Season the gravy with salt and pepper. Cook over medium-low heat for 3 to 4 minutes to thicken.

Serve the chop covered with apples and onions, the gravy poured down over the top, and the muffin alongside.

This is one of the most delicious meals I have found on Food Network! It is comfort food and so healthy! Most every cook has all ingredients in their house to make it! I don't know what else to say about it except TRY IT!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
one chop....4 servings....hello item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe has become a family favourite though we have made a few adaptations. We're not keen on thyme so changed herb to sage, the chops definitely needed longer cooking time. I pan seared the chops for couple minutes each side, removed from pan to drain excess oil & cooked onions, apple, sage etc. I put onion mix into ceramic dish on bottom and put chops on top. Poured cider over, covered in foil and popped in oven for half hour. Then made gravy as recipe, though I kept back a little onion and apple and added to gravy for even more flavour. The pork was sooooo tender it was gorgeous. Served with charlotte new potatoes & roasted veg - we don't have muffins with main meal :( My hubby & sons are meat & veg lads. Thoroughly enjoyed and very popular request for dinner by other family members when visiting item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was amazing. i am a sixteen year old and i made it. It was very simple i did use 2 different types of apples though. one was granny smith and the other was a red sweet apple. I didn't have a lemon so i used 1 tbs. of lemon juice and it was amazing. I also tripled the recipe to make it for my g-parents also. This is a meal that i will definitely recommend this to friends and family. I will be making this again for my neighbors also, when they come over for dinner.:) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought these were good, though not amazing. I made the recipe exactly as stated, doubling it for two people. The gravy was a little too sweet for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe was delicious. I did cook the pork chops longer. I used thicker pork chops but if I had used thin ones the time in recipe would have been sufficient. I also did not have apple cider so I used apple juice for gravy. Good recipe when you want to make an impression on dinner guest. Easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last night because I had all the ingredients on hand, and a granny smith apple that needed to be used. The recipe was super simple, and different. I thought it tasted great. My husband made sure to tell me he didn't like it, so that I would refrain from making it again, hence the 4 stars. He isn't fond of apples, and especially cooked apples, so I should have known his reaction before I gave it a whirl. Also, my chops were a tad undercooked, so I I would definitely brown them a little more than 3-4 minutes on each side. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So simple to make and so delicious to eat. I was able to use home made apple juice in place of cider and added a splash of brandy at the end of cooking gravy. Very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe! I like the simplicity of it, and the gravy was not too sweet. I used boneless pork chops because that's what I had, and dried thyme. I also had to cook the pork chops longer than the recipe indicated, but no big deal - just cook them until they're done. I put the chops back into the gravy and apple and onion mixture to complete the cooking and they were tender and juicy. This recipe is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a phenomenal dish and extremely easy to make. I recommend it to anyone! Pork and apples always pair so well together. item not reviewed by moderator and published
