4 pork chops, bone-in 1 tsp salt ½ tsp black pepper
- 5Once the skillet is hot, add coconut oil and swirl to coat the bottom.
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil
- 6Place the pork chops in the skillet and sear until they develop a nice crust, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Then, reduce the heat to medium and cook the chops, flipping occasionally, until they are cooked through (test using a thermometer or cut into a chop with a knife), another 3 to 5 minutes. Once done, transfer the pork to a plate.

- 9Add the Brussels sprouts to the skillet; cook until they have a nice sear on one side, 4 to 6 minutes. Then, give them a stir and continue cooking until they are browned all over and tender on the inside, another 4 to 6 minutes.
- 10While the Brussels sprouts cook, quarter the apples lengthwise, then cut out the core and stem from each section; large dice the apples (cut into ¾-inch cubes).
- 11In the last few minutes of cooking time, add the apples to the Brussels sprouts; cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are softened, 3 to 4 minutes.
- 12Drizzle the sprouts and apples with apple cider vinegar and season with salt and pepper; toss to combine.
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar ½ tsp salt ¼ tsp black pepper
- 13To serve, divide the pork chops and the sautéed Brussels sprouts and apples between plates. Add a dollop of Dijon to the side for dipping the pork if desired. Enjoy!
