Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter divided use
  • 4 bone in pork chops approximately 5-6 ounces each
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons apple cider divided use
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • 3 apples cored and thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large skillet melt 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Season the pork generously with salt and pepper; cook for 6 minutes on each side or until deep golden brown.
  • Add 1/2 cup of cider to the pan and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes. The bake time depends on the thickness of your chops and your desired level of doneness. I like my pork medium well and bake it for 10 minutes, if you prefer well done, bake for 15 minutes.
  • While the pork is in the oven, In another skillet, cook the apples in the remaining butter over medium-high for 5 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of apple cider, turn the heat to high and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Season the apples with salt to taste.
  • After the pan comes out of the oven transfer the pork to a plate. Whisk the mustard and sage into the cider drippings; season to taste with salt and pepper. Place the apples on the plate with the pork and pour the sauce over the top. Serve.
