    1. Generously season the chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside.
    2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Immediately add the pork chops and cook until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
    3. Return the skillet to medium-high heat and melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Immediately add the apples and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon and cayenne. Stir in the apple cider and cream. Add the pork chops, nestling them into the liquid, and cook until the internal temperature of the pork reaches between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) and 160 degrees F. (medium), 3 to 4 minutes per side.
    4. Serve the chops with the apple mixture spooned on top.

    I added 2 bags of frozen organic sweet potatoes to it. found the apple cider vinegar over powering so I added 2/3 heavy cream instead of 1/3. Also made with 3 Tbsp of brown sugar instead of just 2Tbs

    turned out great, i substituted heavy cream for 1%milk, and used apple juice and a cinnamon stick instead of cider. came out a little thin so used a cornstarch slurry but the flavor was amazing.

    I didn’t like the onion and apple together. I’m not really a fan of the flavor.

    Excellent recipe! It was easy to make and the longer the chops sat in the mix, the tastier the outcome!

    Mine looked just like the picture! it was sweet and a kick of cayanne pepper at the end of each bite. Somehow apples and onions completely work well together. On the Menu list for sure!

    Really good! added some ginger, garlic, sage and thyme! the kids loved it!

    It was okay. we didn't really care for the ratio of cinnamon to onion; i would like to try this again with sweet red onion. All in all not a bad dish, just not overly impressive.

    This tasted wonderful but mine turned out a little too juicy. Next time will add a little something to make a thicker sauce..... FYI Katerina if you make again it calls for apple cider not apple cider vinegar.
