Pork Chops with Thyme and Apple Slices
Ready in 30 minutes or less, this fantastic dish is a great way to get away from the barbecue without turning on the oven. Using fresh ingredients, the crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside pork chops are infused with earthy flavors of thyme and sweet-tart seasonal apples -- a perfect bon voyage to summer.
Pork Chops Sauteed with Thyme and Apple Slices
- 1/2 cup all purpose gluten free flour
- 8 pork chops, very thinly cut (1/2-inch thick)
- 4 tbsp unsalted butter, divided
- 4 tbsp olive oil, divided
- 12 sprigs of fresh thyme or 2 tbsp dried
- 2 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
In a shallow dish, season flour with salt and pepper. Dredge both sides of pork chops, set aside.
In a large skillet, heat half the butter and olive oil. In batches and using the remaining oil and butter, sautee the pork chops for 5 minutes per side, placing the thyme beneath the meat as it cooks. Remove chops to a plate and keep warm until all of the meat has been cooked.
In the same skillet, sauté the apples for 2-4 minutes or until tender but not mushy. Serve apples arranged over the pork chops with garlic mashed potatoes or green salad with bleu cheese or gorgonzola dressing.
