We hadn't made these in a while then with our 6 week nutrition challenge we needed some variety! I forgot how SIMPLE and DELICIOUS! Enjoy!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 small cloves garlic, crushed

  • 2 thin-cut boneless pork chops (3 ounces each)

  • 2 small red apples, such as gala or red delicious, cored and diced

  • 4 teaspoons balsamic or red wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons bourbon

  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard

  • salt

  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Combine the oil and garlic in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place the pork chops in the center of the skillet.

  • In a medium bowl, toss the apple with the vinegar and bourbon, and then add the mixture to the skillet between the pork and the edges of the pan. Cook for 6 minutes, turning the pork once and the apple pieces a few times. When ready to serve, top the pork with mustard. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
