- Spray medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Brown pork chops about 3 minutes on each side. Add 1/4 cup apple cider. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 8 minutes or until pork is barely pink in center. Remove pork from skillet; keep warm.
- Add liquid from remaining cabbage-apple mixture to skillet. Combine remaining 1/4 cup cider, 2 teaspoons mustard and cornstarch in small bowl until smooth. Stir into liquid in skillet. Simmer over medium heat until thickened. Spoon glaze over chops and cabbage-apple mixture. Slice remaining 2 apple quarters; divide between servings.
