This easy recipe will put dinner on the table in about 30 minutes, and it will absolutely deliver the taste of Fall. The apple pie spice, sage, and fresh apples accent the pork chops so well, and the maple syrup adds an amazing sweetness to the dish.
2 TBS olive oil
4 thick-cut pork chops
2 tsp Apple Pie Seasoning
1 TBS Melissa’s Garlic Blend Seasoning
1 TBS flour
1 TBS butter
4 Honeycrisp apples, cored and cut into ½” thick pieces
1 onion, cut into julienne strips
6–8 fresh sage leaves, chopped finely
½ cup maple syrup
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Heat an oven-proof skillet or cast iron pan to medium-high. Lightly sprinkle each side of pork chop with apple pie spice, Garlic Blend, and flour. Lightly pat.
Put olive oil in a skillet, and put in 2 pork chops. Brown on each side for 2-3 minutes. Remove, then repeat for the next two pork chops and remove them when browned.
Add butter to skillet, and add in onions and apples. Cook until apples are caramelized and onions are softened about 4-5 minutes. Sprinkle sage over apples, add maple syrup, and stir. Place pork chops on top and then place in oven. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature of pork chops is 140 degrees. Remove pan from oven and place on stovetop.
Put pork chops on another plate and lightly cover to rest. Turn stove to medium-high and boil pan-drippings, apples, and syrup until sauce is reduced and lightly covers the back of a spoon. Remove from heat.
Plate pork chops and spoon over some apples and syrup mixture. Serve and enjoy!
