    1. Generously season the chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside.
    2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Immediately add the pork chops and cook until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
    3. Return the skillet to medium-high heat and melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Immediately add the apples and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon and cayenne. Stir in the apple cider and cream. Add the pork chops, nestling them into the liquid, and cook until the internal temperature of the pork reaches between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) and 160 degrees F. (medium), 3 to 4 minutes per side.
    4. Serve the chops with the apple mixture spooned on top.

    It was okay. we didn't really care for the ratio of cinnamon to onion; i would like to try this again with sweet red onion. All in all not a bad dish, just not overly impressive.

    This tasted wonderful but mine turned out a little too juicy. Next time will add a little something to make a thicker sauce..... FYI Katerina if you make again it calls for apple cider not apple cider vinegar.

    My partner and I love it! I added a little more sugar in mine because we found the vinegar a little over powering but it was delicious!
