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


 *Substitute 1/2 cup sliced onion.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    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.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

    Serve with prepared rice.

Tip #1

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.
