Ingredients

  • 4 (or more) pork chops (preferably from an organic source)
  • 2 (or more) apples peeled and sliced into thin slices
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (optional but good)
  • salt, pepper, rosemary to taste
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • optional sides: baked zucchini, fresh greens

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Melt butter in baking dish and place pork chops in.

  3. Season with salt, pepper, rosemary and any other desired spices and pour balsamic vinegar over all.

  4. Top with apples (I saute them in butter first to make sure the apples get soft).

  5. Bake in oven 20-30 minutes until an internal temp of at least 140 F.

  6. Alternatively, you could cook pork chops and apples together in large skillet. This only takes about 15 minutes.
