Savory Saturday

Oh, so good pork chops!  I found this recipe in the spice aisle at the grocery store! It was on a packet of that had all the spices needed to make it.  I am not a huge pork chop fan, but you better believe I will be making these again! 

Apple & Sage Pork Chops

1 1/2 t   rubbed sage
1 t   minced garlic
1 t   thyme leaves
1/2 t   ground allspice
1/2 t   paprika
1 T   flour
1 t   salt
4 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick (about 1 1/4 lbs)
2 T  olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 red apples, thinly sliced
1/2 C   apple juice
1 T   brown sugar

1. Mix spices, flour, and salt in a small bowl.  Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with 1 tablespoon of the seasoned flour.

2. Cook pork chops in hot oil in large skillet on medium-high heat until browned on both sides.  Remove from skillet.  Add onion; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender.  Add apples; cook and stir 2 minutes.

3. Stir in juice, sugar and remaining seasoned flour until well mixed.  Return pork chops to skillet.  Bring to boil.  Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until desired doneness.

I forgot to buy apple juice so I improvised by adding 1/2 C or chicken broth and about a tablespoon of apple sauce.

We ate the pork chops over white rice with a side of broccoli.  A little sauce from the pork chop pan over the rice=delicious!
