Sage Pork Chops with Cider Pan Gravy

A creamy sauce flavored with apple cider and sage makes for a quick and tasty weeknight dinner. If you like, serve these lightly seasoned chops with couscous, rice or noodles.

Prep Time

        Prep and cook time: 30 minutes
        Yield: Serves 4


        1/2 tsp salt
        2 tbsps butter
        1/4 tsp pepper
        2 tbsps canola oil
    •    minced fresh parsley
        1/4 cup all-purpose flour
        3 tbsps dried sage leaves
    •    1/2 cup apple cider or juice
    •    1/4 cup heavy shipping cream
    •    4 bone-in center-cut pork loin chops (about 6 ounces each)


  1. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper; rub with sage. Dip in flour to coat lightly.
  2. In a large skillet, heat butter and oil over medium heat; brown chops on both sides. Remove from pan.
  3. Add broth and cider to skillet; bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Add cream; cook and stir until thickened. Reduce heat to medium. Add chops; cook, covered, until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 5-7 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes; sprinkle with parsley.
