Apple and Sage Pork Chops

Have you ever seen a pretty pork chop?

I hadn’t either until I made this dish. I also have to mention that my husband doesn’t even eat pork… and he ate these. Pretty on the outside and tasty on the inside. Such a well rounded pork chop.

I usually stick to bread crumbs and applesauce when it comes to pork, but this time I tried these awesome and extremely easy seasoning packets and I cannot believe what a difference seasoning makes. These pork chops are “restaurant chef” good.

You simply mix up the mini spice packs they give you with 1 tablespoon flour and 1 table spoon salt.

Rub a tablespoon of your spice mixture on to each side of each pork chop. Heat up some olive oil (2 table spoons) in a large saute pan and sear your pork chops unitl they are golden (2-3 minutes each side). Remove your chops and set them aside for later.

In the same pan sautee 1 small white onion (sliced) until tender, then add about 2 sliced Honey Crisp apples. Sautee for another 2 -3 minutes .

Add 1/2 cup apple juice and 2 table spoons brown sugar and any remaining spices you have left over and mix everything together

Add your pork chops back to the pan and put a lid on it. Cook for 5 more minutes and then serve. (I added some diced chives for a garnish)
