Marinated apple cider pork chops are juicy with a hint of tangy flavor, a delicious addition to an elegant fall meal.


  • 1/4 cup fresh pressed apple cider (or apple juice, if you can’t find cider)
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce (or Liquid Aminos)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 4 bone-in pork chops (approximately 2 lbs total)
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • Caramelized Apples and Onions
  • Fresh thyme for garnish (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, stir together apple cider, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, salt, garlic, and thyme.
  2. Place pork chops in a zip-top bag and pour marinade over the top. Close tightly and turn gently to coat well. Place bag in refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  3. Add pork chops to a large skillet coated with oil, and place over medium-high heat. Pour the marinade over the top of the chops. Cook the pork chops thoroughly, approximately 4-5 minutes on each side.
  4. Add your homemade caramelized apples and onions, and heat through alongside the chops.
  5. Serve immediately, topped with caramelized apples and onions.
