Pork Chops With Apple and Onion

Recipe by Dr. Jenny
READY IN: 35mins




  • Slash the edges of the chops in 1 or 2 places to prevent curling. To make the rub, in a small bowl combine the sage, salt, and pepper. Rub the pork chops all over with the rub. Let stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes or up to 1 hour, or cover and refrigerate overnight. Bring to room temperature, if necessary, before cooking.
  • In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the chops and brown for about 2 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium and cover the pan. Cook until the meat is lightly pink near the bone or an instant-read thermometer inserted away from the bone registers 145 degrees F (63 C), 4-5 minutes longer. Transfer the chops to a platter and tent them loosely with aluminum foil while you make the sauce.
  • Pour off all but 1 Tb of the drippings from the pan. Add the onion and apple and saute until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the vermouth and deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom.
  • Spoon the apple and onion mixture onto individual plates. Place the pork chops on top, drizzle with the pan juices, and serve.
