Ingredients

  • 4 fast-fry pork chops
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 apples , preferably McIntosh
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger , or bottled minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage leaves , crumbled
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  • Using a knife, nick edges of chops so they won’t curl during cooking. Melt butter in a wide frying pan, preferably non-stick, set over medium-high heat. Add chops. Cook until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side, then remove to a plate.
  • Meanwhile, thinly slice unpeeled apples. When chops are removed from pan, add juice, ginger, salt and sage. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up and stir in any brown bits from pan bottom. Add apples. Lay chops overtop. Drizzle with maple syrup. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer, stirring halfway through, until apples are tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Great with mashed potatoes.
