2 Mackintosh apples, cored and quartered
1 small onion, sliced

Season chops with salt and pepper and add to the pan.
Add onions and cook 4 minutes, or until chops are well browned.

Pairs Well With
I hadn't planned on making pork chops with beer for dinner last night! I had everything cooking and ready to go when I opened the fridge and realized I had no chicken stock to make my sauce! I didn't have any white wine, either, but I did have plenty of Sam Adams Oktoberfest :) It came out so good, and was super simple!
