Grilled Apple Cinnamon Pork Chops

So, if you can’t tell by now, I really like cinnamon.

I was at Whole Foods yesterday doing my meat shopping and I saw the most delicious looking pork.

It was local, and pastured raised…in an animal centered environment.

I fell in love and bought some boneless pork chops and sausages…

I see a lot of people pairing pork with apples…and I see a lot of people pairing apples with cinnamon.

So I thought: Why not make some apple cinnamon pork chops?

And so this recipe was born.

Apple Cinnamon Pork Chops (inspired by Paleo Table)


For the Porks:

2 boneless pork chops

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

1 Tbsp cinnamon

sprinkle of sea salt and pepper

For the apples:

Coconut oil for the pan

2 medium-sized apples, sliced

1 onion, sliced

sprinkles of cinnamon, sea salt and pepper


  1. In a large plastic bag mix the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Add the pork chops and allow to marinate for at least 1 hr.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the coconut oil, and then saute the apples and onions until soft.
  3. Season the apples and onions with cinnamon, salt and pepper.
  4. Once your pork is done soaking, fire up the grill. Grill them porks until they’re done (M usually does this part…so I assume you grill them until they’re cooked all the way through…like chicken.)
  5. Serve the grilled pork chops on a bed of apples and onions. Add a green leafy veggie if you wish– I think some sautéed spinach would have gone really well with this meal!

Simple and tasty! I love baked apples, so this was a real treat. I can’t wait to make this recipe again when peaches are in season…grilled peaches would be SO good with this…

    YUM!! This looks really good, and I’m totally going to make it. Usually try to make 4-6 servings at a time for leftovers. Would there be too many apples/onions/other ingredients if you doubled/trippled the recipe exactly?

      Hi Heather! Nope! I would double/triple the recipe as is…except maybe not as many onions…but that’s totally up to you! I wish I had made more of this recipe, but I only bought two pork chops… let me know how it turns out!
