Apple Pork Chops
Adapted from the Recipe Inspirations Apple & Sage Pork Chops recipe from the McCormick site. I really liked it and will definitely try it again.
3 tbsp Flour
2 tsp Sage, dried
1 tsp Rosemary, dried
1 tsp Thyme Leaves, dried
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Allspice, Ground
1 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
6 boneless pork chops, around 3/4 inch thick (or boneless pork sirloin chops - cut in half)
2 tbsp Olive oil
1 Medium onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp Garlic, chopped (or two cloved)
1 red apple, thinly sliced (I used a large honeycrisp)
1/2 cup Apple juice or cider
1 tbsp & 1 tsp Brown sugar
1. Mix flour, sage, rosemary, thyme, paprika, allspice, kosher salt and black pepper in small bowl. Reserve 1 tbsp of the flour mixture and use the remaining to sprinkle on both sides of the pork chops.
2. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add pork chops and brown on both sides (around 3-4 minutes on first side and 2-3 minutes on the other). Remove pork from skillet.
3. Heat remaining 1 tbsp olive oil. Add onion and garlic, then cook for around 3 minutes. Add apples and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
4. To the pan, stir in juice, sugar and remaining seasoned flour until well mixed. Return pork chops to skillet & bring sauce to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Cook for an additional 7-9 minutes.
Enjoy with potatoes and a green vegetable.
