  • 2 bone-in pork chops, about 1 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 12 fresh sage leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 tablespoons apple butter
  • 1-2 honeycrisp apples, cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme


How to cook Apple and Sage Pork Chops

  1. Allow your chops to rest on the counter for 30 minutes or so while you prepare the rest of the dish. Season with salt, pepper, and some garlic powder.
  2. Using a cast iron skillet, set the heat to medium. Brown the chops for 5 or so minutes - this all depends on the thickness of your chops - these were 1.5 inches thick, bone in, so they took about 10 minutes each side. Properly cooked pork will reach an internal temperature of 165° so check carefully. When the temperature is reached, remove to a plate and set aside. Spread with the apple butter.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the skillet along with the butter and cook for 3-4 minutes, adjust your seasonings, especially the salt as you don't want the sweet taste over-powering the dish. Add the balsamic vinegar to the pan, add the chops back to the skillet. Spoon some of the sauces over the chops, as well as some of the apples.
  4. Place under the broiler for about 3 minutes until the apples are starting to brown. Add the fresh chopped thyme to the juices and spoon over the chops.
