Pork and fruit go quite well together--I already had a pork chop and pear dish, so I looked for something to use up apples that were not being eaten. This is the recipe I cobbled together that we liked best. —jph
pork chops about 3/4 to 1-inch thick, trimmed
large yellow onion, thin-sliced
large green apples, cored, pared, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
caraway seeds, moderately crushed using a mortar/pestle
garlic granules, to taste
