Apple & Sage Pork Chops

Apple & Sage Pork Chops
1 1/2 tsp Rubbed Sage
1 tsp Minced Garlic
1 tsp Thyme Leaves
1/2 tsp Ground Allspice
1/2 tsp Paprika
1 Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
4 boneless pork chops (1" thick - about 1 1/4 lb)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 medium onion (thinly sliced)
2 apples (thinly sliced)
1/2 cup apple juice
1 Tbsp brown sugar
Combine the flour, salt and spices.  Sprinkle the spice mix lightly to cover both sides of the pork chops.

Slice apples and onions into thin slices.  Set aside for later.

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium high heat.  When oil is hot, place chops in the pan.  Turn chops after about 5 minutes.  Allow to brown on the second side for about 5 minutes. Remove chops from pan.

Add onions to pan and cook for two minutes.  Stir brown sugar into remaining spice mix. Add apples to pan and cook for three more minutes. Add apple juice and remaining spice mix to pan.  Stir over medium heat until sauce is thickened.  Add pork chops to sauce, cover and cook until chops reach desired doneness.

Note:  If you don't have all recommended spices, look in your local grocery store's spice isle.  McCormick makes "McCormick Inspirations" that come with this recipe and all spices pre-measured in little blister packets for only $1.99!
