- 6 boneless pork chops
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons crumbled dried sage

- Using salt and sage, season pork chops evenly on both sides. In a large skillet over a medium flame, heat the vegetable oil and brown pork chops on both sides. Transfer chops to a shallow baking dish and save pan drippings.
- Peel, core, and slice apples layering them over pork chops. Drizzle the maple syrup over the apples slices.
- Sprinkle flour over the pan drippings that were saved and cook until brown, stirring occasionally. Add chicken broth and stir constantly until mixture is smooth. Bring to a boil, stir in vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and raisins. Pour mixture over the pork chops and apples, cover pan with aluminum foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes.

I'm being a bit chintzy with my 5 star rating lately but this dish is totally deserving! I made them as directed but cooked them for a little less time. I thought the sauce was marvelous! Although I cut the chops back to just 2 portions I made the full amount of sauce so there was plenty for the mashed potatoes as well. Yummy recipe - Thanks!
You've got yourself a winner here! I loved the sauce! The pork was tender and flavorful. The apples were very soft, as they were meant to be in a baked dish. I skipped the raisins. This recipe was easy to make and let it bake away in the oven while I did other things. For all of those reasons, I'm adding it to my Best of 2018 list. Thank you!
So easy to put together but then I still made ahead so did toss my apple in some lemon juice and put everything together and cooked about 8 hours later (took out of the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking) and baked at 175C fanforced for 50 minutes, the only other isue I had was I was going to use sultanas instead of raisins only to discover I none in either pantry so used craisins and they worked well in the dish which was throughly enjoyed. Made for Went to Market tag game.
