How to Make Pork Chops with Apple

Generously season the pork with salt and pepper.

Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium and arrange the pork chops there.

Cook the pork for 4 minutes per side. Pork is done cooking when it reaches an internal temperature of 145F. Use an instant-read meat thermometer to determine when your pork chops have finished cooking and are ready to plate. You don't want to overcook the pork because it'll become tough instead of tender.

Take the pork chops out of the skillet and place on a plate.

Put the onions and apples in the skillet. Add rosemary, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sauté for several minutes until the onions and apples soften.

Stir in the flour.

Pour in the stock.

Place the pork chops in the pan.

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.

Serve and enjoy!
