Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 3 boneless pork chops
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste the pork chop
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3/4 cup low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard use yellow mustard for Whole30
  • 1 tbsp fresh sage chopped
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 medium apples sliced (I used Honey Crisp)
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Season the pork chops (both sides) with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  • In a large cast iron skillet, add 1 tbsp olive oil and heat over medium.
  • When the skillet is really hot, add the pork chops. Sear until golden, about 3-5 minutes per side. Pork will be mostly done, but it will continue cooking in the sauce.
  • Remove pork chops to a plate.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, chicken stock, and mustard. Set aside.
  • Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to the same skillet, and then add apples and onions.
  • Cook for about 3-4 minutes (time will depending on the thickness of the apple slices). Don’t forget to stir occasionally. Season with salt, pepper and sage.
  • Pour in stock mixture over the apples and onions. Gently scrape the bottom of the pan to release any brown bits.
  • Return pork chops back into the pan.
  • 10. Cook for 2 minutes, until pork chops are finished cooking and liquid has reduced by half.
  • 11. Top with fresh sage before serving.

Notes

  1. Don't cook apple for over 5 minutes. Otherwise they'll be soggy.
