Cheesy pork chops...

any time i am lucky enough to ride on the passenger side of the car, one of the things I like to do is scroll through the many recipe apps on my phone. in my quest to find really good meals to cook for the family (that I will only cook once.... at least that's what my hubby says) i found cheesy pork chops with spicy apples~ the recipe was submitted on all recipes dot com from DRANDYP. i thought it tasted super yummy and had to share so, give it a try and let me know what you think, I will definately cook it for my next dinner gathering!

*1 tbsp butter
*1 onion, sliced
*1 pinch red pepper flakes (I used more)
*1 apple, cored and sliced
*2 tbsp white sugar (I used 4)
*2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (once again... I used 4!)
*4 pork chops
*salt and pepper to taste (I seasoned with garlic powder, pepper, thyme & Tony Chachere)
*4 slices extra sharp cheddar cheese

* prepare a grill for hight heat

*While the grill heats, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook until soft. Season with red pepper flakes then add the sliced apples. Stir in the sugar and balsamic vinegar, and simmer for 5 inutes, or until apples are soft and golden I added a pic of mine below (◠‿◠)

*Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes per side (depending on the the thickness). Spoon the onions and apples on top of the chops...

*Top with a slice of cheddar cheese. Cover the grill, and cook for about 3 minutes (or until cheese is melted and bubbling.)

the recipe says this cheesy pork would go perfect with braised cabbage, i decided fresh broccoli and mash potatoes would work best for my crowd... They enjoyed it!!! (it's going in my favorites file...)
