Servings and Ingredients

Serves 2
2 thick cut bone-in Iowa pork chops
Hy-Vee salt and Hy-Vee black pepper, to taste
1 tbsp. Hy-Vee Select olive oil
¾ c. Hy-Vee apple juice
2 apples, cored and thinly sliced
1 tsp. Hy-Vee thyme


  1. Season pork chops with salt and black pepper. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops 10 to 12 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking, or until internal temperature of pork reaches 145. Transfer pork chops to a plate, cover and keep warm.
  2. Slowly add apple juice to skillet, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add apple slices and thyme. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 3 minutes or until apples are tender.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer apples to a small bowl; cover and keep warm. Bring broth mixture in skillet to boiling. Boil 3 to 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Return chops and apples to skillet; heat through.
