Recipe of the Week: Pork Chops with Apples

  • ¾ cup brown rice, uncooked
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (5 oz each, ½ inch thick)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, cut into ½ inch wedges
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • ¾ cup apple cider
  1. Rub both sides of the pork chops with the sage and pepper to taste. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat, then add 1 teaspoon olive oil and sear the chops until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Wipe out the skillet and add the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil. Add the onion and apples and cook over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Season with pepper and stir in the cider.
  3. Return the chops to the skillet. Cover and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.
