Finely chop thyme. Peel and julienne onion. Core and slice apple into ¼-inch thick slices. Julienne cabbage ¼-inch slices.

Cut potatoes in half and place in a saucepot covered with cold water and a pinch of salt. Put on stove on medium-high heat and cook 15-20 minutes until tender (reserve to be sautéed).

Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper and chopped thyme. Heat a large skillet with canola oil and heat for one minute on high. Add in pork chops and cook 5-6 minutes before flipping, cook another 5-6 minutes and deglaze pan with the apple cider, cover with a lid and cook another 2-3 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches at least 145°F.

Meanwhile, heat butter on medium-high add in onions and cook 2-3 minutes stirring frequently. Then, add in cooked potatoes, season the pan with salt and pepper and cook another 3-4 minutes.

Once potatoes start to slightly brown, add in sliced apples and cook another 2-3 minutes or until apples are slightly soft. Add in cabbage and cook until wilted. Taste for salt and pepper and add more if needed. Spoon this mixture on a plate or platter and top with pork chop. Drizzle pork chops with remaining pan sauce and enjoy!
