Kyra Williams for The Upside Blog


This warm and comforting meal comes together in one skillet in 30 minutes. You simply can not beat that. Sweet apples cook down with red onion to create a sweet and savory earthy smother for the seared pork. With fresh rosemary and thyme and a dollop of whole-grain mustard in the mix, plates will be licked clean.

  1. Season both sides of pork chops with kosher salt and black pepper, to taste.
  2. In cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, heat one tablespoon oil. Add pork chops, leaving about one inch between chops to ensure even cooking. Sear about 4 minutes each side. Remove pork chops from pan onto paper towels.
  3. In pan over medium-high heat, heat one tablespoon oil and add apple, onion, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. In bowl, whisk together bone broth and mustard; add to pan. (Note: At this point, apples and onion should begin to get tender.)
  5. In pan, make space between apples and onion to add pork chops. Cook about 3 minutes to ensure internal temperature of pork chops reaches at least 145 degrees F.
  6. To serve, garnish with additional rosemary.
