Bring dinner to the table in a single pan with this Skillet Pork Chops with Apple Gnocchi Sauté recipe. Glaze everything with a hard cider sauce (or sub traditional apple cider) for a restaurant-quality meal that YOU can make at home on a weeknight.
It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Michigan, and I’m ready for some comfort food. This time of year, my favorite meals are the kind where everything can be roasted on one sheet pan, or where (almost) everything can be made in a single skillet.
This Skillet Pork Chops with Apple Gnocchi Sauté & Hard Cider Sauce recipe is the (almost) single skillet kind. While I tried to skip the pre-cooking the gnocchi part so I could truly make it a one-skillet meal, that ended up not working out. The gnocchi were too dense and chewy that way, so for this meal to turn out amazing, you do have to cook those in a separate pot of boiling water.
While the gnocchi are cooking, you’ll be using a big skillet to cook everything else in batches. First the pork chops, then the Michigan Gala apples, then toasting the gnocchi in some butter (oh yeah), then making an easy pan sauce with hard apple cider. In the end, you add everything back to the skillet, and have a complete dinner to bring to the table!
