Pork Chops

1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 (1/2- to 1-inch thick) bone-in pork chops
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1 cup apple cider
2 large (1/2 cup) shallots, thinly sliced*
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
2 tart red apples, cored, cut into 1/2-inch slices


1 (6.3-ounce) box long grain and wild rice, cooked according to package directions


Salt and pepper pork chops. Melt butter in 10-inch deep skillet until sizzling; add pork chops. Cook over medium-high heat, turning once, 3-4 minutes or until pork is browned.

Reduce heat to low; add apple cider, shallots and garlic. Cover; cook, turning chops once, 25-30 minutes or until pork reaches at least 145°F and is tender. Place pork chops onto serving platter. Cover; keep warm.

Add apple slices to sauce in pan. Cover; cook over medium heat 4-6 minutes or until apples are tender. Pour apples and sauce over pork chops.

Serve with prepared rice.


*Substitute 1/2 cup sliced onion.

Recipe Tip

Shallots look similar to a large garlic bulb, however their taste is more like an onion. Look for dry skin shallots that are firm and plump with no signs of wrinkling or sprouting.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

This recipe was easy to make and very tasty. The pork was very tender, and my son said, it was like eating meat with apple pie on top.
Great recepie, I did not have shallots so I used sweet onions, and I marinated pork chops in apple cider with onions, and garlic removed pork chops form marinade browned them and then added marinade and cooked, also I used center cut chops, delicious, will use this recepie again. Pork chops were tender, and not dried. Thank you.
