Pork Chops with Savory Apples

(Gluten-Free)

Ingredients

  • 2 medium apples

  • 1 medium onion

  • 1 large clove garlic

  • 4 pork chops, about 3/4-inch thick, with bone (about 1-1/2 pounds total)

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream

Directions

Quarter and core apples. Peel if desired. Cut onion in half and then slice it. Use a large frying pan with a lid. Heat oil over medium-high heat and add chops and garlic. Brown quickly, about two minutes per side. Add cut-up apples, onion, and water. Cover and turn heat to low. Let cook for about 15 minutes, until pork is cooked through and apples are soft. Remove chops to a warm serving platter. Bring pan juices to a boil and turn off heat. Stir in sour cream and pour over chops. Serve immediately.
