This recipe was an accident. I was experimenting with flavors and wasn't expecting much out of it, but the apple cider addition yielded some of the best pork I've ever tasted (and the boyfriend agreed).

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  • Combine brown sugar, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon sage, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Dredge pork chops in seasoning mixture until coated thoroughly.

  • Heat olive oil and butter in an oven-safe skillet over medium heat until butter is frothy, 1 to 2 minutes. Brown pork chops in the hot skillet on each side, 7 to 10 minutes total. Add apple cider, remaining sage, and drizzle in honey. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until pork chops are no longer pink in the centers, 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  • Remove the skillet from the oven and plate pork chops with sauce.

Cook's Note:

If necessary, reduce the sauce further on the stovetop until sauce is a nice glaze after plating pork chops. For a thicker glaze, carefully mix in 1 teaspoon or so of cornstarch.

This is an awesome recipe. The only thing I did differently is add one chopped fresh apple before I put it in the oven. Yum!! Thanks for this recipe Read More
