PORK AND BEANS SKILLET SUPPER
Pork and Beans Skillet Supper
- Cooking Time: 15
- Servings: 6
- Preparation Time: 3
- 6 boneless, center-cut pork chops, about 3 ounces each
- 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 1 can (15 ounces) baked beans
- 1 can (7 ounces) corn kernels, drained
- 1 teaspoon apple-cider vinegar
- Pinch dried thyme (optional)
Season the pork chops on both sides with sugar and salt and pepper to taste; set aside.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the chops on both sides, about 2 minutes per side.
Add the apple juice and heat to boiling. Stir in the baked beans, corn, vinegar and thyme, if desired.
Stir briefly to combine the liquids in the pan. Simmer until the chops are firm to the touch (an internal temperature of 155°F), about 10 minutes, turning two or three times. Turn off the heat, cover for about five minutes as you finish preparing the meal; pork will come up to 160°F.
When the chops are done remove them to a serving platter. If the bean mixture is too liquid, boil over high heat for a few minutes until lightly thickened, stirring often. Spoon the beans around the chops and serve.
