Pork Chops with Braised Apples & Onions (Paleo)
Delicious Pork Chops in a Caramelized Apple and Onion Stew. This One Skillet Dish is Nutritious, Easy to Prepare & Ready in Less Than 30 minutes!
I love a good pork chop. Extra emphasis on the *good* part, because more often than not, when someone makes you a pork chop it’s dried out, tough, and unappetizing. The key is in the technique, and it’s actually really simple to perfect this recipe and get a perfectly cooked bone-in piece of meat that is tender, juicy and super flavorful.
Quality, as always, is so important- particularly with pork. Go and buy your chops from your local farmer who you know and trust. If you are store shopping, make sure you double check for organic and grass-fed labels. Same goes with the apples and onions, be sure that they are organic and not heavily sprayed with pesticides to ensure you are receiving a nutrient-dense, nourishing meal.
I recommend that you eat these pork chops with my cauliflower mash. If you’re an ugly eater, like me, mix it all together. I’m serious-- SO good. It’s such a comfort food dish and an easy dinner that takes very little time to prepare. The apples and onions braised together are just heavenly!
