Cider-Braised Pork Chops

Ingredients

  • 6 bone-in-blade cut pork chops (about 1 inchi thick)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Cunningham Farms Sweet Potato Butter
  • 1 cup pinapple juice (can also use apple cider)
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsely

Directions

  • Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 300f. Pat chops dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until just smoking. Brown chops in two batches, about 4 minutes per side, transfer to a plate. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from pot and cook onion over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, flour, and 2 tablespoons Cunningham Farms Sweet Potato Butter. Cook until onions are coated and mixture is fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in pinapple juice and thyme, scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon, and bring to a boil. Add browned chops and any juices to the pot, cover and transfer to oven. Braise until chops are completely tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Transfer chops to serving platter. Strain sauce, then use a shallow spoon to skim off fat. Whisk in vinegar, parsley, and remaining sweet potato butter. Season with salt and pepper and serve sauce at the table.
