Pork Chops Baked with Apples and Onions

Olive oil for searing the pork chops
8 pork chops - about 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick
2 Vidalia onions - peeled and thinly chopped
1/2 cup sherry
1/2 cup apple cider
6 large McIntosh apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat enough olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat just to cover the bottom of the pan. Add the pork chops and sear until golden brown, about 1-1/2 minutes per side. Remove the pork chops to a plate and set aside.

Add the onion to the skillet and cook (adding more olive oil if needed), stirring often, for about 2 minutes. Add the sherry and the cider and cook, stirring constantly, scraping up any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Add the apples and salt and pepper to taste.

Reduce the heat and cook for 5 minutes.

Push the pork chops down into the apple mixture and pour any juices accumulated on the plate over them. Cover with foil and bake until the pork chops are tender and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper. Divide among 8 plates and serve immediately with a season vegetable and mashed potatoes.

Serves: 8
