Pork, Apple & Potato Saute
Servings: 4 Prep 15 mins Cook 23 mins Bake 350°F 7 mins to 9 mins


  • 4 center-cut pork chops (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 1 box (4.5 ounces) roasted garlic and herb crispy potatoes (such as Betty Crocker)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese crumbles (about 4 ounces)

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pork chops on a cutting board. Remove seasoning packet from potato package; sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon seasoning over chops. Sprinkle chops with 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high to high heat for about 3 minutes. Add chops and cook 3 minutes on one side until nicely browned. Flip over chops; continue to brown an additional 2 minutes. Move pork to a baking sheet and transfer to oven. Bake at 350 degrees F for 7 to 9 minutes, or until instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees F in center of chop. Cover with foil and keep warm.

3. Meanwhile, add potatoes and 1-3/4 cups water to skillet. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and add apple slices and remaining seasoning from package. Cook 7 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and mixture begins to sizzle. Stir in peas; cook 3 minutes.

4. Remove skillet from heat and stir in cheddar cheese. Transfer potato mixture to a platter; top with pork and serve.
