Pork Chops with Carmalized Onions and Apples

As many of you know, I am not huge on pork. I don't know what it is about it, but I usually avoid recipes with them, on the other hand, David really likes pork so I have tried to be an adventurer with this one. It was really tasty and the fun part was it looks really fancy but was actually a piece of cake. Enjoy!
4 Bone in Pork Chops, the thicker the better
1-2 Medium yellow onions (thinly sliced)
3-4 Granny Smith Apples (peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick)
1/3 cup brown sugar
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9X13 baking dish. Lay out onions on the bottom of dish in a thick layer, place apple slices on top of onions. Sprinkle onions and apples with brown sugar. Season pork chops heavily with salt and pepper, place those in a single layer on top of onions and apples. Cover TIGHTLY with foil and bake for about 3 hours. Serve pork chops with onions and apples as a layer on top.

Tip: It's tempting to open the oven and check on your chops, but don't. Opening the oven or lifting the foil will let out moisture, and your pork chops will dry out.
