  • 4 (7 to 8 ounce) bone-in pork center-cut rib chops, trimmed of fat
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 firm cooking apples, such as Gala or Fuji, cut into ¼-inch slices
  • 1 large onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1-2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1⅓ cups hot cooked brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Coat a 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat the skillet over medium-high. Add the chops; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until browned on both sides. Remove from the skillet; keep warm.
  2. Combine apples, onion, and garlic in the skillet. Cook over medium-high 6 to 8 minutes or until the apples are golden, stirring occasionally. Carefully add wine; cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring to scrape up crusty brown bits. Stir in broth, mustard, and butter. Return the chops to the skillet. Simmer, covered, 4 to 6 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the chops registers 145°F.
  3. Serve the chops and the apple mixture with rice. Sprinkle with thyme.
