  • Serves


"Thick, juicy pork chops grill up perfectly in the Ooni 3, paired with tart roast apple wedges and a touch of cinnamon."


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil (plus more for the pan)
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 pork chops, bone in
  • 3 tbsp. butter, unsalted
  • 2 green apples, quartered
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 1 c. (200ml) apple cider


  1. 1. Fire up your Uuni 3 or Ooni Pro. Aim for 375°F (190°C) on the stone baking board inside. You can check the temperature inside your Ooni pizza oven quickly and easily using an infrared thermometer.
  2. 2. In a bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of olive oil along with the cinnamon, brown sugar, white wine vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Add the pork chops and coat well with the marinade.
  3. 3. Add a little olive oil to your Skillet and place inside the oven to warm up.
  4. 4. Once the Skillet is warm, add the butter to the pan. When melted, add the pork chops. Place the Skillet in the oven to cook for 3 minutes, or until the chops are golden brown on one side, then flip over the chops. Add the apple to the pan, and nestle the thyme and cinnamon quill into the melted butter in the pan. Gently pour in the apple cider.
  5. 5. Return the pan to the oven to cook for another 3 minutes, or until the pork chops are golden all over and the apples have softened and caramelized. Leave the meat to rest in the pan for 5 minutes, covered with aluminum (tin) foil, then slice and serve with spoonfuls of the cooked apple and pan juices.
