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.

I made this for my husband and I with a baked sweet potato. Halfway through, he looked at me and said "When are we having this again?!" The only thing that was difficult was finding a 4-pack of approx 4 oz chops.

This is my favorite pork chop recipe. I made it when I had company over, and everyone raved about how delicious it was. I will make many more times.

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!

With so many wonderful recipes there are not many I bother repeating, but this has become one of my go-to weeknight meals. So easy and everyone loves it! Serve with some bread of (godforbid) some stove-top and you've got a super fast and tasty meal.

I took a shortcut and used Apple pie filling instead of fresh apples. Not as healthy, but everyone Loved it! We will have this one again! And it was really easy for a weeknight meal.

I've been making a similar dish for 20+ years but never added the sage until now. I did follow my own cooking steps, which is to sear the chops in a skillet then transfer them to a baking dish and cover with the sliced apples, add 1/2 cup of apple juice or cider and sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar. Cover the baking dish - glass lid or foil, either one - and bake for 30-40 minutes until the pork chops are done. Depending on the chops, sometimes they'll literally fall off the bone. This main dish cooks in the oven while the sides finish on top. We seemed always to lean towards fresh green beans and real mashed potatoes. Very easy, very good, and such a pity that none of my three kids cares for it. Never could figure that out; they're not fussy eaters and like most everything else I do...

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