Ingredients

  • 4 thick cut bone in pork chops
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4-6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • ½ recipe baked apples
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Make the ½ recipe for baked apples and keep warm.
  • Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Add the olive oil to a large frying pan over high heat and once it begins to lightly smoke, add in the pork chops and turn the head down to medium-high heat.
  • Add in the butter and thyme and cook for 7-8 minutes per side or until golden brown and the desired internal temperature is achieved.
  • Rest the pork for 3-4 minutes before serving with the baked apples.

Notes

Chef Notes:
• How to Reheat: Add the pork chops and apples to a pan with a lid and bake in the oven at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until hot.
Make-Ahead: It is best to serve this recipe as soon as it’s ready, but you can make it up to 1 day ahead of time, simply keep covered in the refrigerator until ready to reheat and serve.
How to Store: Cover and keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
I personally enjoy a combination of tart and sweet apples when making them, but feel free to use what you like.
