Pork Chops with Apple Cheddar Hash

This meal is packed full of scrumptious fall flavors with apples, potatoes, cheddar cheese, and pork! I've always enjoyed pairing apples or applesauce with pork, and this recipe bumps that combination up a notch.

I'm a very picky pork eater. It has to be cooked and seasoned perfectly for me to enjoy it. I cleaned my plate, so this recipe is definitely a keeper! We served with roasted carrots, tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme. Delicious!

Pork Chops with Apple Cheddar Hash
·4 boneless pork chops, about 1½ inches thick
·Salt and pepper
·EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
·1 lb potato, peeled and diced into ½ cubes
·2 medium onions, diced into ½ cubes
·2 Honeycrisp apples, cored and diced into ½ cubes
·1 TBS apple cider vinegar
·2 cups Kraft Triple Cheddar Cheese Blend, shredded

Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Add EVOO and pork chops to a cast-iron pan. Cook for about 12 minutes, turning occasionally, until chops are cooked through. Remove pork chops from the pan, and add the potatoes and onions to the cooking liquid. Season with salt and pepper, and cook for 6-8 minutes. Add apple and cook for 5 more minutes. Stir in vinegar to the pan and cook for another minute or two. Remove from heat and stir in cheddar cheese.
