Ingredients:

  • 2 bone-in pork chops, each about 1 inch thick
  • 3 Tbsp Grapeseed Oil, divided
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 medium apples, cored and cut into chunks
  • 2 shallots
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 10 fresh sage leaves
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • Half a lemon, sliced
  • A handful of whole walnuts
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat an oven to 400.
  2. In a large cast iron skillet (or oven-friendly alternative) over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons Grapeseed Oil.
  3. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper; add the pork chops to the pan and sear for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Flip pork once golden brown, and add tablespoon of Grapeseed Oil around the chops. Once shimmering, place the apple wedges, cut side down, shallots and garlic around the pork chops.
  5. Sear with the pork chops for another 2-3 minutes; add sage and thyme leaves, lemon slices, walnuts and drizzle with maple syrup, then transfer the pan to the oven.
  6. Roast until the pork chops are cooked through and the apples are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Serve the pork chops immediately, spooning the apples and any juices in the pan on top.
