Apple-Stuffed Pork Chops

I forgot to take a picture of this simple and delicious dinner, but this is kinda what it looked like:

We served this with asparagus and mashed potatoes: quick and hearty! Thanks to Matt for the recipe!


4-6 thick-cut pork chops, sliced in half (I didn't cut through so that I would have a pocket)
1 small onion, diced
1 medium apple, peel and diced
2 cloves of garlic
Salt and Pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Saute the garlic in oil until fragrant, about 30 seconds.  Add in the onion and apple and saute until tender, about 5-6 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool.  

Season the pork chops with salt and pepper.  Fill the chops with the onion-apple mixture (I used a spoon, which worked great).  Sear the chops, about 2 minutes per side.  Transfer the pan to the preheated oven, and let cook for about 10 minutes, or until the pork is no longer pink.
