Skillet Apple Pork Chops
With fresh sage and apple, this dish is tasty, easy and done in a flash. The recipe says garlic butter, but I keep a jar with three cloves of garlic covered in olive oil and use that instead. The garlic oil is delicious for salads also. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, Ontario
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 1 tablespoon canola oil

- 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/4 teaspoon salt

This was a good, healthy recipe but my family didn't care for the crushed red pepper. Thought it made it too hot and took away from the apple flavor.

This was really good! I didn't have sage.
