Ingredients

• 3 tablespoons butter, divided • 4 bone-in pork chops, approximately 5-6 ounces each • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons apple cider, divided • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard • 1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped • 3 apples, cored and thinly sliced • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Step 1

To begin, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

In a large skillet, melt 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Generously season the pork with salt and pepper, cooking for 6 minutes on each side, or until you achieve a deep golden brown.

Step 3

Add 1/2 cup of cider to the pan, then place in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

Step 4

As usual, when it comes to baking meat, the cooking time depends on the thickness of the pork chops and your desired level of doneness. For medium-well, bake for 10 minutes. For well done, bake for 15 minutes.

Step 5

While the pork is cooking, using a separate skillet, cook the sliced apples for 5 minutes in the remaining butter over medium-high heat.

Step 6

Add in the remaining 2 tablespoons of apple cider, increasing the heat to high, cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes. Season the apples with salt, to taste.

Step 7

Once cooked to your desired doneness, remove the pork chops from the oven and transfer them to a plate.

Step 8

Whisk the sage and mustard into the cider drippings, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 9

Set the apples on the plate with the pork, pouring the sauce over the top. Serve with extra sauce, if desired.
