|"This pork chop dish was one of the first my eldest son requested the recipe for when he got his own kitchen. Sometimes we replace the onion with leeks or add a sliced potato. We have deglazed the pan with beer, white wine, cider, chicken broth, and even water. Sautéed apples and onion combine with the pork for a tastiness that never disappoints."|
List of Ingredients:
6 bone-in pork chops (loin or shoulder), cut 3/4 inch thick
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil or vegetable oil
2 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter
1 large white onion, sliced
3 cup(s) cored, sliced apples
1 cup(s) beer, white wine, cider, or chicken broth
1.Trim the chops of excess fat. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a 14-inch cast-iron skillet (if you have a smaller one, you'll need to work in batches) over high heat, and then swirl in the olive oil. Lay in the pork chops and don't move them for a few minutes, to assure a good golden sear forms. Turn and brown well on the second side for a total of about 10 minutes. Transfer the chops to a warm plate.
2.Swirl the butter into the pan. Add the onion and apples. Sauté until the onion slices are lightly caramelized and the apples have begun to soften, about 8 minutes. Stir in the beer or other liquid. Return chops to the pan.
3.Cook until the pork is tender, about 15 more minutes (depending on the size of the chops), turning halfway through and covering the chops with the apple mixture. If the apple mixture needs a little thickening, transfer the chops to the warm plate again and simmer the mixture on high for a few minutes to reduce. Serve the chops over rice or mashed potatoes with a large spoonful of the apple-onion mixture over the top.

[ Comment ]
According to the CDC Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and adolescents; about 151,000 people below the age of 20 years have diabetes. When diabetes strikes during childhood, it is routinely assumed to be type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes. However, in the last 2 decades, type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes) has been reported among U.S. children and adolescents with increasing frequency.
