  • 4 about 5 ounce pork chops (I used a blade cut – make sure they have some fat and best with a bone in them)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced onions about 1 ½ large cut them in half and thinly slice
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup dry red wine
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups homemade or low-sodium beef broth
  • 2 – 3 apples cut into halves, cored and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon each extra virgin olive oil and unsalted butter or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon minced thyme


  • Heat the oven to 375º F. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper then place in a baking dish that just fits them. Put into the oven and bake (it will be about 15 minutes until the onions are ready, so just let them cook while you prepare the onions).
  • In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium heat; add the onions and butter; season with salt and pepper and stir. Cook, stirring often until the onions are soft and just beginning to brown. 
  • Stir in the flour; cook about 1 minute, then add the wine and balsamic. Allow this to reduce by half, then add the beef broth. Stir and cook until thick, pour over the pork chops. Shut the oven and cook for another 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • While the pork chops bake, heat the teaspoon of oil and butter together in a skillet, add the apples and cook, stirring, until they are soft and brown. Add the chopped thyme and a pinch of salt. Cook for another minute or so and then remove from the heat.
  • To serve: Place the apple slices on a plate, top with the pork chop and spoon the gravy over.
