Now that we are settling into our new routines with back to school, new jobs, and for me more work. Dinners need to be tasty and not take hours to make. Sometimes a good slow cooker meal is great. When I am not in the mood for that I gravitate towardsSmithfield pork chops. They are super easy to cook up in a skillet using any sauces, fruits, or spices. Just like this Pear and Apple Pork Chop Skillet.
This weekend I stopped off at Tom Thumb and picked up my Smithfield All Natural pork chops.
I also picked up some apples, pears, and rosemary. Knew I wanted to make a easy dish that would fit with our new routine but also have tons of flavor. I needed something simple and not much clean up so I paired the pork with apples and pears along with baked potatoes on the side.
Pear and Apple Pork Chops
Skillet cooked pork chops topped with pears, apples, and rosemary.
- 2 packages of Smithfield pork chops (8)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 white onion; sliced into half rounds
- 2 sprigs of rosemary
- 1 granny apple; sliced skin on
- 1 bartlett pear; sliced skin on
- ¼ teaspoon Mediterranean salt
- ¼ teaspoon cracked peppercorn pepper
- 1 tablespoon Greek olive oil
- In a large cast iron skillet, add one tablespoon of greek olive oil and bring to a low heat. Add in onions, apples, and pears. Stuff pork chops under the fruit being careful not to burn your fingers.
- Top with rosemary, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring heat to medium high and cook for about 7 minutes turning pork every so often. Lower heat after 15 minutes and cook until pork is a bit blackened to add crunch. Careful not to burn.
- Serve with baked potato, pears, and apples.
