Succulent pork chops, the rich aromatic flavour of sage and the sweet juiciness of apples. These super-simple pork chops with apple and sage take a quick and easy midweek supper dish to new heights.
Pork chops with apples and sage
Pork can often be considered a bit bland but these pork chops with apples and sage really pack a punch in the flavour department and will make you forget any thoughts you’ve ever harboured about the blandness of pork forever.
Apples and sage
This fruity herb combo make the perfect partnership with pork. Just think of images of suckling pigs roasting with an apple in their mouths and good old sage in stuffing alongside pork sausage meat.
Add some heat
I’ve added a bit of fire to these pork chops by using freshly grated ginger in my recipe. It really lifts the flavour when it is mixed with the apple and placed on top of the chops and their creamy sage and apple infused sauce.
A simple three-step recipe
This is a simple three-part recipe, you’ll be grilling the chops, making the creamy sauce and then the ginger apple topping, but none of this takes much effort and it certainly doesn’t take much time.
I’ve served these pork chops with apples and sage with rustic sweet potato chips and some simple steamed greens. This makes this a healthy dish.
You could just as easily serve this with chips or a baked potato.
Sweet Potato Chips
For the sweet potato chips simply scrub the sweet potato retaining the skin and cut into chunky chips. Toss in some olive oil and sprinkle on a teaspoon of chopped fresh rosemary and salt and pepper and roast in the oven at 200C/400F for 20 minutes.
