pork steaks with apples and onions
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
2 tbsp olive oil
**4 (3-4 oz.) pork steaks
**¾ cup chicken broth
1 tsp dijon mustard
**1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
**1 ½ tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
**½ tsp fresh thyme, chopped
**2 medium apples, halved and thinly sliced
**1 small red onion, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
Season both sides of pork chops with salt and black pepper. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to large heavy bottomed pan (or skillet), and heat over medium-high heat. Add pork steaks to pan, leaving at least an inch between the chops to ensure even cooking and browning. Sear 3-5 minutes per side - they will continue cooking in the sauce later. Remove pork to a plate.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together chicken stock and mustard, set aside.
Add remaining 1 Tbsp oil to the pan, then add apples and onions. Cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt, pepper, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Stir to combine.
Pour in stock mixture, using a wooden spoon to gently scrape the bottom of the pan to release any brown bits.
Slide pork chops back into the pan, nestling them down in between the apples.
Cook 2-3 minutes, until pork chops are finished cooking and liquid has reduced by half.
