  • 2 thin-cut boneless pork loin chops, (8 ounces), trimmed of fat
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 thin slices prosciutto, (1 ounce), chopped
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • ¾ cup chopped dried apples

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add prosciutto and cook, stirring constantly, until browned, about 1 minute. Transfer to the plate.
  2. Add cider, apples, ¼ cup broth, vinegar and sage to the pan and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples have softened, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Stir together mustard, cornstarch and the remaining ¼ cup broth in a small bowl. Add to the pan and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Return the pork and prosciutto to the pan and simmer, turning the pork to coat, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • ?Tips for Two—Broth

Delicious, a go-to to impress This meal work perfectly with some mashed potatoes. Definitely enjoy with some dry white wine and you'll be sure to impress. Pros: Unparalleled pork recipe, deliciously combines sweetness w/the chops Cons: A little messy to make and requires somewhat extensive clean-up
