Prep Time:
10 minutes

Cooking Time:
15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 bone-in Ontario pork loin chops (about 1 1/2 lb/750 g total)
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried thyme leaves or 2 tsp (10 mL) chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt, divided
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) hard apple cider
  • 1/4 cup (60 m L) 35% whipping cream
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Sprinkle pork chops all over with thyme, pepper and all but a pinch of the salt.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and brown pork chops on both sides. Remove pork chops to a plate.

Butter Cider Variation: Omit cream and substitute 3 tbsp (45 mL) of butter for the whipping cream.
