Primavera Pork Chops



Create a complete dinner with 7 ingredients!

Quick, company's coming and my cupboard is bare. What will I do? Hopefully you'll have these seven ingredients on hand and, in a flash, have dinner on the table in no time.

Primavera Pork Chops
4 servings


4 slices bacon, cut in 1-inch pieces
12-oz. trimmed fresh young green beans
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
4 pork chops, 1/2 inch thick
1/3 cup apple butter
1/4 cup water
1 cup red or yellow cherry or grape tomatoes

In 12-inch skillet cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp; remove. Reserve 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet. Drain bacon on paper towels.
Meanwhile, in 2-quart microwave-safe dish cook beans in 2 tablespoons water, covered, on high (100% power) 4 minutes; stir once. Drain, set aside. Brush chops with soy sauce. In skillet brown chops on both sides. Add apple butter and the 1/4 cup water; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Add beans, tomatoes, and bacon; cook, uncovered, 3 to 5 minutes, until sauce thickens.
