Makes Four Servings


  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 apples, cored and sliced
  • 1 T butter
  • 1⁄4  cup maple syrup
  • 1⁄4  cup maple syrup
  • 1⁄4  tsp. cinnamon
  • 1⁄4  tsp. nutmeg
  • 1⁄4  tsp. allspice
  • Fresh parsley (chopped) or rosemary

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2: Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper.

Step 3: In large oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear them for about 3-4 minutes on each side until they’re golden brown. Remove them from the skillet and set aside.

Step 4: In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the sliced apples and sauté for about 3-4 minutes until they start to soften.

Step 5: In a small bowl, mix together the maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Pour mixture over the apples in the skillet and stir to combine.

Step 6: Return the seared porkchops to the skillet, nestling them among the apples.

Step 7: Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and roast for about 10-15 minutes or until the pork chops are cooked through and have reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

Step 8: Remove the skillet from the oven and let sit for a few minutes.

Step 9: Serve the pork chops over a bed of the sautéed apples. Drizzle remaining glaze over the top.

Step 10: Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or rosemary.
