This easy, weeknight recipe is a summery twist on the classic pairing of pork chops and apples. First, we sous vide the pork in our Suvie until perfectly cooked and juicy. Then, we sear the pork in a hot skillet to develop a deep crust on the exterior. Finally, we sear the peaches with shallot in the skillet to concentrate the fruit’s sugar and absorb some of the meaty flavors left in the pan. Finishing the peaches and pork with grainy mustard and apple cider vinegar adds tanginess to contrast with the sweet fruit and savory chops.

2) While the pork cooks, stir mustard and vinegar together in a small bowl.
3) Just before the pork is done cooking, peel peaches, pit, and cut in half.
3) After the pork has finished cooking, remove from vacuum bags and pat dry thoroughly. Heat vegetable oil in a large cast iron skillet or heavy bottom pan over high heat until smoking. Add the pork chops and sear for 1 minute on each side until browned. Transfer pork chops to a cutting board, leaving oil in the pan.
4) Reduce heat to medium, add the onions to the pan, and cook for 1 minute until softened, stirring frequently.
5) Using a spoon or spatula, push red onions to the edge of the pan and add the peaches, cut side down. Cook peaches for 1 minute, then flip and cook for an additional minute, or until both sides are browned. Transfer peaches to a cutting board, slice into wedges, and season lightly with salt.
6) Divide onions, pork chops, and peaches between plates. Drizzle reserved dressing over each plate and serve.
To make this recipe on the stovetop, heat 1 tsp vegetable oil in a large skillet until shimmering. Add the pork chops and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side until browned. Add remaining vegetable oil and once shimmering, add the pitted, peeled, and cut peaches. Cook for 1 minute per side, adding the shallot during the final minute of cooking. Divide peaches, shallots, and pork between plates. Stir grainy mustard and red wine vinegar together and serve with peaches and pork chops.
