Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

In a large cast iron skillet, melt 1½ tbsp of butter over medium heat. Salt and pepper 4 bone-in pork chops and cook for about 6 minutes on each side to get a nice sear.

Add ½ a cup of apple cider to the skillet and place it in a 400-degree oven for 10–15 minutes.

While the pork is baking, core and thinly slice 3 apples. Cook the apples in 1½ tbsp of butter over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add 2 tbsp of apple cider and cook over high heat for 2 more minutes.
