  • 1 tbsp butter , or olive oil
  • 4 pork chops , about 1/2-in. thick
  • 1/4 cup apple or orange juice , or white wine
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 carrots , or 1 carrot and 1 parsnip
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried sage , or basil leaves, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Melt butter in a large, wide frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chops. Cook until golden-tinged, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Meanwhile, in a measuring cup, stir juice with honey. Slice carrots into thin rounds. Cut any large rounds in half. Slice zucchini in half lengthwise, then slice each half diagonally into thin pieces. In a small bowl, stir paprika with sage and salt.
  • Remove browned chops to a plate. Add carrots and zucchini. Stir-fry until veggies start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add juice mixture. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up and stir in brown bits from pan bottom to flavour sauce. Then return pork to pan. Sprinkle pork and veggies with seasoning mixture. Cover, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, turning pork partway through and stirring vegetables, until tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Taste and add more seasonings, if needed. Great with mashed potatoes, baked sweet potatoes or over basmati rice.
