Pork Chops with Apples and Shallots

Recipe from Everyday Food cookbook (Great Food Fast). They’re not kidding…. it’s great and it’s fast.
I love the flavor of the caramelized shallots with wine and apples. Yum!
I made a half recipe since it was just two of us, so that’s what I’m listing here. Everything’s the same, just doubled ingredients to make it for 4 people. I served it with salad because pork is so filling.
Two photos from my phone mid-meal; one natural light, one with dining room light on… really changes the color!

Ingredients (Serves 2):
2 bone-in pork rib chops (about 1/2″ thick, 6-8oz)
1 tbsp butter
1/4 lb shallots halved or quartered
1 granny smith apple, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup white wine
EVOO
salt pepper

Heat the broiler (ours has to have a temp, so I set it to broil 500F), set a broiling pan 4″ under the broiler.
In a skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
Cover pan and reduce heat to medium. Cook until shallots are soft, about 5 minutes more.
Add apples and wine, cover and cook until apples are beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Uncover and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated and apples are tender, 2-4 minutes more. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
While apples are cooking, season pork chops with salt and pepper (I put a little EVOO on the one side of each chop to prevent sticking). Place on broiler pan and cook through, 3-5 minutes on each side. (Mine took 6.5-7 minutes total – one chop was bigger). To serve, spoon apple mixture over chops.
