Arrange pork chops in a separate skillet; season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Drizzle 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1 tablespoon olive oil over pork chops. Cook pork chops over medium heat until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Transfer pork chops to a serving dish and top with apple-onion topping. Serve immediately.
