  • 4 boneless pork chops 1/2-inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons fresh sage minced
  • 1 teaspoons fresh rosemary minced
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Black pepper plus more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 1 medium red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 red apples thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 2/3 cup beef or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  • Rub the minced herbs on both sides of the pork chops, then season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat, then add half of the olive oil. Sear the pork chops for 2 minutes on each side, until golden. Transfer to a plate. 
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and carefully wipe it out with paper towels. Return skillet to the stove, reduce heat to medium, then add the remaining olive oil. 
  • Add the onion and apples and cook 5-6 minutes until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper, the stir in the wine, deglazing the pan with a wooden spoon to release the brown bits from the bottom. Allow to reduce for 1 minute, then stir in the broth and maple syrup.
  • Return the pork chops to the skillet, nestling them between the apples and onions. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning once, until just cooked through. Center pork temperature should be at least 145 degrees F when probed with a meat thermometer.
  • Serve the pork chops, onion and apples over mashed potatoes or rice, drizzled with the pan juices.
