Apple Cider Pork Chops with Thyme


                 The key to great pork chops is not over cooking them and giving them a great
                  sear that brings great flavor. Apple and pork go hand and hand and this dish
                  is so simply delicious and all you have to do is add apple cider and thyme.


                     I served this with baked sweet potatoes and green beans. A great Fall meal.

                                                       Apple Cider Pork Chops with Thyme

                                                       4 to 6 pork chops about 1/2 inch
                                                       4 sprigs of fresh thyme
                                                       1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
                                                       1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and onion powder
                                                       2 tablespoons olive oil
                                                       3/4 cups apple cider
                                                       1 tablespoon butter

                    1) Sprinkle both side of pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion
                    powder.

                    2) Heat skillet with olive oil for 2 minutes. Add pork chops 5 minutes on
                    each side or until done - time with be different depending on the size of your
                    pork chops.

                    3) Transfer pork chops to plate and add apple cider and stir getting all of
                    the goodness of the bottom of the skillet. Let apple cider simmer and add
                    the thyme and stir in the cold butter when it's melted. Pour over pork chops.
