Pork chops with apples and sage

March 13, 2013
There are days when I get home and the only thing I want to do is grab a bite, have a hot bath and make myself warm and comfortable. And since I have grown rather tired of home deliveries, what I need are quick and easy recipes.

One such recipe is today’s. It takes no time to prepare and is extremely yummy. You really will enjoy it and can make it in different variations. The next time, for example, instead of pork chops you can try using sausages.

Pork chops with apples and sage

Ingredients (for 4 servings)

  • 30 gr butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 pork chops, about 1½ cm thick
  • 2 apples, peeled and cut in thin slices
  • 20 ml cider
  • 4 tbsp dairy cream
  • 4 tsp fresh sage, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation

Heat the oil and butter in a large, heavy frying pan on high heat. As soon as the butter begins to melt and bubble, add the pork chops and season with salt and pepper. Sear the chops for 2-3 minutes until golden brown underneath and then turn them over, season again and continue sautéing for another 2-3 minutes. Turn over the chops once again and add the apple slices to the pan so that they cover the meat. Cook for about 5 minutes, regularly stirring the apples until they too are golden brown. Then add the cider, dairy cream and sage, mix well, lower the heat and simmer for a few minutes until the sauce begins to thicken. Season with plenty of freshly ground pepper and serve immediately.
