Servings: 4


  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 honeycrisp apples thinly sliced
  • 3 tsp fresh sage finely chopped


  • In a large liquid measuring cup or mixing bowl whisk together ½ cup of apple cider, ½ cup of chicken broth, 2 teaspoons of dijon mustard, ½ teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of cornstarch. Set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat then add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season both sides of the 4 pork chops liberally with a big pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Add 4 pork chops and sear until browned, about 3 minutes then flip and continue cooking for another 3 minutes or until the center registers 145°F.
  • Transfer pork chops to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. In the same skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat.
  • Add 1 thinly sliced red onion, 2 medium sweet crisp apples, and 3 teaspoons of finely chopped sage and saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Whisk cider mixture before pouring into skillet and season to taste with a big pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Let simmer until reduced by half, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Return pork chops to pan and spoon mixture over chops. Serve warm.


  • To complete the meal serve with my smashed potatoes or roasted sweet potatoes or butternut squash.


  • Protein: Swap pork chops for chicken breasts or thighs. You can also use bone-in pork chops for a more robust flavor, just increase the cook time accordingly.
  • Vegetarian: Remove the pork from the recipe and serve the apple onion mixture over whole roasted sweet potatoes.
