Pork Chops with Horseradish Apples
Nothing evokes the fall season like a plate of pork chops and apples, but we upped the ante with spicy horseradish, which adds new verve to this timeless dish.
4 center-cut bone-in pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/3-inch wedges
⅓ cup dry white wine
⅓ cup water
1 tablespoon drained bottled horseradish, or to taste
2 tablespoons chopped chives
2. Pat chops dry and season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
3. Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Sauté chops, turning once, until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm, loosely covered.
4. Reduce heat to medium and add onion, apples, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Add wine and water and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender but not falling apart, about 12 minutes. Stir in horseradish, chives, and meat juices from plate. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chops with sauce.
