One Skillet Pork Chops Brussels Sprouts Apples Recipe

One Skillet Pork Chops, Brussels Sprouts & Apples Recipe

July 12, 2019

This recipe for One Skillet Pork Chops, Brussels Sprouts & Apples is an easy weeknight family dinner using one of my favorite combinations – Brussels sprouts, sweet onions, and apples. However, if you can get your hands on my favorite apple, the SugarBee from Chelan Fresh, your dinner will be golden! It’s actually a new apple variety that was created from a little honeybee cross-pollinating the Honey Crisp apple. So…it’s like the child of the Honey Crisp. And it’s sugary sweet, with a creamy white flesh, a nice snap, and an unforgettable taste. Plus, it’s a shiny candy-apple red! For that reason, we personally call it the “fairy tale apple” in my house.

One Skillet Pork Chops, Brussels Sprouts & Apples Recipe

Recipe byAnnessa Chumbley, RD
Serves: 4
Prep time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 center-cut boneless pork chops
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large Sugar Bee Apple, cored and sliced on the bias
  • 1 large red onion, sliced in half, and then on the bias
  • 16 ounces Brussels sprouts, sliced in half
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary, plus more

Directions

  1. Heat a large cast-iron skillet to medium-high, adding 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season both sides of the pork chops with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Add pork chops to skillet, and let them cook undisturbed to get a good sear, about 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook 2-3 minutes on the other side, until chops are cooked through. (The time needed will depend upon the thickness of your pork chops; thicker pork chops will need 4-5 minutes per side.) Remove and set aside to a plate; cover to keep hot.
  3. In a large bowl, mix apples, onion, and Brussels sprouts, tossing with the rest of the olive oil, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and chopped rosemary. Pour mixture into the skillet and sauté on medium high for 7-9 minutes, until mixture is seared around the edges, and Brussels sprouts are fork-tender.
  4. Turn off the heat and add pork chops back to into the skillet so that each one is surrounded by the Brussels sprout mixture. Sprinkle a little more fresh rosemary over the skillet, and serve!
