Pork Chops with Savory Apples
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
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 pork chops and
garlic. Brown quickly, about 2 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
(internal temperature of 145°F with 3 minutes of rest) 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.
