  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons rubbed sage

  • 1 teaspoon dried minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice

  • ½ teaspoon ground paprika

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 (5 ounce) boneless pork chops, about 1 inch thick

  • 1 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 medium Red Delicious apples, cored and thinly sliced

  • ½ cup apple juice

  • 1 ½ tablespoons brown sugar


  1. Mix flour, sage, garlic, thyme, salt, allspice, and paprika together in a small bowl. Set aside 2/3 of the spice mixture for later use. Sprinkle remaining spice mixture onto the pork chops, coating all sides.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and cook in the hot oil until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove pork from the skillet.

  3. Add onion to the skillet and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Add apples; cook and stir for 2 more minutes. Stir in apple juice, brown sugar, and reserved spice mixture; bring to a boil.

  4. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until pork is longer pink in the center, and reaches desired level of doneness, about 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
