  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large heavy skillet, over medium-high heat, melt half of the butter. Fry the pork chops on both sides until a nice golden color. Transfer the chops to a 2 quart casserole dish with a lid, and sprinkle with thyme.
  3. Melt the remaining butter in the pan, and fry the onion and garlic until tender. Transfer them to the casserole dish. Fry the apple rings in the pan for a few seconds on each side to give them color, then remove to the casserole dish. Sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Spoon any excess fat from the frying pan and pour in the apple cider. Stir to remove any flavorful bits from the bottom. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then pour over the pork chops and apples in the dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake the casserole, covered for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the pork chops are cooked through. Remove the pork chops and apples to a serving platter and stir the cream into the juices. Serve sauce over pork chops.

Different than any pork recipe I have had, very flavorful. You wont have any leftovers!

This is a georgous meal enjoyed by the whole family thank you

I am new in Scotland and I am trying new recipes and this one is great!! I used a dry cider beer and i little more heavy cream and there was no leftovers!!

Living in the UK made me anxious to try this with local ingredients (we actually live in Somerset). I do agree that it was bland even with local dry cider (much different from what you get in t...

I was rather disappointed with this recipe- it was bland and not as creamy as I would have hoped- I had to add other spices too it- honestly, I don't think I will make it again

This was very nice although I made a few changes. I used butterflied pork steaks instead of chops. I cooked the pork, then cooked the sauce then added the pork back to the sauce to heat through ...

I liked this recipe, but I thought it missed something. It was a little bland. Next time, I will double the apples and may even mix some BBQ sauce into the cider for more flavor!
