Pork Chop Skillet Dinner

  • 2 pork loin chops, approx 3/4″ thick
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. Cook rice, as instructed on your package, using 1 cup chicken broth and 1 cup apple juice instead of water. Reserve 1 cup apple juice for later.
  2. Spray a nonstick frying pan with cooking spray.
  3. Cook pork chops on medium high heat until browned on both sides, approx 6 to 7 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  4. In the same pan melt butter, add celery, apple slices and thyme and cook until semi tender.
  5. Combine cooked rice, celery and apple mixture, and place in cast iron frying pan. Pour reserved cup of apple juice over this mixture.
  6. Place pork chops on top, cover with foil and bake in 375º oven for 30 minutes.
  7. Remove foil and serve right from the frying pan. A salad or coleslaw would be a nice addition to this meal.
