Pork Chops with an apple sauce & a side of Sweet Corn Tomalito

Pork Chops with an apple sauce & a side of Sweet Corn Tomalito 
I melted 2 tbsp of butter and a splash of olive oil into a pan then I added the 2 salted & peppered pork Chops to the melted butter. I let it cook through, then removed the chops when they were cooked through. I diced up a fuji apple and added it to the drippings. Then I poured in some apple juice, apple cider vinegar, a dash of salt. and some honey. I let it boil for a few minutes and then returned the pork with whatever juice was left. Cover it and let it simmer for 20 min, turning the chops at the 10 minute mark. I served with apples and sauce on top with a side of the sweet corn tomalito.
