4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop and 3/4 cup apple mixture)

Warm flavors like sage and cinnamon play up the contrast between the juicy pork chops and caramelized apples. Tart Granny Smiths and slightly sweeter Braeburn apples both work well for this dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients, and sprinkle over the pork. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add pork; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove the pork from pan. Cover and keep warm.

Step 2

Melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add apples and remaining ingredients, and cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Serve the apples with pork.

This was an ok dish.  I thought it lacked a bit of flavor.

Easy to make for a weeknight meal. Served with roasted potatoes and french beans.

Pretty good and easy to make - I grilled the pork. DD wasn't a big fan and thought the meat was bland. I served it with mashed potatoes. *************Update: Ok - I made it again and now it is 4 stars. It helps to use fresh dried sage. :-)

Just made this tonight because I wanted something quick and it came out amazing. I didn't do it exactly to the letter because I just used what I had on hand, but it was great. Changes: -No sage. Used half oregano and half parlsey instead. -No chops. Used pork rib meat cut into 1 inch sections. -Used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil. -No lemon juice. Omitted completely. -Only had 1 apple on hand so that is what I used. Did not peel the apple. I will definitely be using this recipe again!

This was excellent...and pretty quick too. I would second another review and make more of the sauce for the apples and try to put it over the pork, but it was very good!

Delicious, easy. Will do again. Used a gala apple, but I think the Granny Smith would hold up better to frying.

Such a quick and easy weeknight recipe, especially if you peel and slice the apples ahead of time! I varied the spices in the rub on the pork chop and used rosemary and thyme with the salt and pepper, which was really good, too! Instead of the pasta, I served it with cauliflower "mashed potatoes" with sour cream, chives, and parmesan cheese -- a nice way to sneak in vegetables! This recipe is a repeater in our house!

I did not use Granny Smiths, but instead Fugis. I think Granny Smiths would add some more complexity, but a good recipe all around. Paired it with a sour cream and chive mashed potatoes. Quick and easy to make.
