Apple-icious Pork Chops

I saw a post from my favorite fruit stand the other day, telling me the Honeycrisp apple season was just about over for the year.  How sad!  I immediately ran down and bought a bunch.  …And now I’m trying to eat them all before they go bad.

To remember them, I immortalized one in paint.  Because if you can’t eat them, you may as well paint them.

I always enjoy pork and fruit together.  Something about the blending of those flavors just makes me happy.  These pork chops are such a great quickie meal for weeknights but fancy enough you could serve them to company.

Apple-icious Pork Chops

4 pork chops (I usually use the boneless loin chops, but any will work)
Salt & pepper
1/4 tsp. sage
1 apple, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup red onion, chopped
2 tsp. butter
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon

Rub pork chops with salt, pepper and sage on both sides.  Drizzle a little olive oil in a pan.  Pan-fry chops 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through (thinner chops may not need quite as long, thicker chops might need a little longer).  Remove from pan.  Add onion to the pan and cook 1-2 minutes.  Add apples and butter.  Saute one minute or so.  Add brown sugar and cinnamon.  Saute another minute, until mixture is well combined and apples are just barely tender.  Pour apple mixture over chops and serve immediately.  Makes 4 servings.
