Pork Chops with Savory Apples – Gluten-Free Entrée


Seasonal recipes don’t have to be predictable. Enjoy this gluten-free pork entrée at one of your hosted gatherings, or for a tasty weeknight in. Either way, the savory apple and onion sauce is sure to delight!

Pair this entrée with a side of brussels sprouts with mushroom sauce and gingered rice pudding for the perfect, well-rounded celebratory meal.


  • 2 medium apples
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 4 pork chops, about ¾ inch thick, with bone (about 1-1 ½ pounds total)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup fat-free sour cream (or dairy-free sour cream substitute)


Quarter and core apples. Peel if desired. Cut onion in half and then slice it.

Use a large frying pan with a lid. Heat oil over medium-high heat and add pork chops and garlic. Brown quickly, about 2 minutes per side. Add cut-up apples, onion, and water. Cover and turn heat to low. Let cook for about 15 minutes, until pork is cooked through (internal temperature of 145°F with 3 minutes of rest) and apples are soft.

Remove chops to a warm serving platter. Bring pan juices to a boil and turn off heat. Stir in sour cream and pour over chops. Serve immediately.
