Pork Chops with Apple-Corn Bread Stuffing

(2 Servings)

4 1/2 inch thick boneless pork loin chops, trimmed
1tsp dried thyme
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped peeled tart apple (such as Granny Smith)
3/4 cup corn bread stuffing mix, crushed
1/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 450F. Season pork with 1/2 tsp thyme, then salt
and pepper. Melt 1/2 tbs butter in heavy medium skillet over
medium high heat. Add pork chops to skillet; saute until cooked
through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to small
baking pan. Melt remaining 1 tbs butter in same skillet over
medium high heat. Add chopped onion and apple to skillet and
saute until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add stuffing
mix, water and remaining 1/2 tsp thyme. Stir until water is
absorbed and stuffing is moist, about 30 seconds. Mound 1/4 of
stuffing on each pork ship. Bake until stuffing is crisp and
beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
