A creamy sauce flavored with apple cider and sage makes for a quick and tasty weeknight dinner. If you like, serve these lightly seasoned chops with couscous, rice or noodles.—Erica Wilson, Beverly, Massachusetts
- 4 bone-in center-cut pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons dried sage leaves
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1/2 cup apple cider or juice
- 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- Minced fresh parsley
- Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper; rub with sage. Place flour in a small shallow bowl; coat chops with flour.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, brown chops in butter and oil on both sides. Remove and keep warm.
- Add cider, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Cook, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Stir in broth; cook 3 minutes longer. Add cream; cook for 2-3 minutes or until gravy is slightly thickened. Return chops to the pan; cover and cook for 6-8 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Garnish with parsley. Yield: 4 servings.
