      1/4   c            Onion, chopped fine'
    1       tb           Brown sugar
    2       tb           Red wine vinegar
    1                    Ripe tomato peeled, seeded

   1. Trim most of the fat from the chops. 2. Quarter,
   core and peel the apples. 3. Heat the oil in the
   skillet large enough to hold the chops in one layer.
   Add the chops and cook until nicely browned on one
   side, 2-3 min. Turn and cook on the other side about
   2-3 min. Continue cooking the chops about 15 min.,
   turning them often. 4. Arrange the apple quarters
   around the chops. Cover closely and cook 5 min. 5.
   Transfer the chops and apple quarters to a warmed
   platter and keep hot. 6. Pour off the fat from the
   skillet. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until
   wilted. Add the brown sugar and vinegar and stir. Add
   the tomato and chicken broth. Stir to dissolve the
   brown particles that cling to the bottom and sides of
   the skillet. Cook, stirring, about 2 min. 7. Add any
   liquid that has accumulated around the chops. Cook
   until the sauce has reduced to about 3/4 cups. 8. Pour
   the sauce over the chops and apples.
