Weight Watchers Tart Apple Pork

For me there is nothing better than pork chops and apples.  In the past, I would prefer fried pork chops, but the Weight Watcher Tart Apple Pork is so good that I never want fried pork chops again.

For the Tart Apple Pork recipe you will need:
16 ounces lean boneless pork chops, center-cut, trimmed of all visible fat
1 Tbsp rosemary, fresh chopped
1 Tbsp thyme, fresh chopped (I used dried)
½ tsp table salt
¼ tsp black pepper, freshly ground
2 tsp canola oil
2 medium fresh apples, Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and slived
1 large uncooked onions, thinly sliced
2/3 cups apple juice, unsweetened variety
2 Tbsp honey mustard

Sprinkle the chops with the rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chops and cook until browned and cooked through, 4–5 minutes on each side; transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. 

Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the same skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and onion.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 8 minutes.

Stir in the apple juice and honey mustard; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.
Return chops to pan and cook, turning once, to heat through, about 2 minutes.
For 7 points, you can have one chop and 1/2 cup of the apple onion mixture.  I served the Tart Apple Pork over the Weight Watcher Sour Cream and Garlic Mash Potatoes
