  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage, plus more for garnish

  • ½ teaspoon paprika

  • ¼ teaspoon salt plus a pinch, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 2 bone-in pork chops, 1 inch thick, trimmed

  • 1 Honeycrisp apple, cored and cut into 1/2-inch wedges

  • 6 ounces green beans, trimmed and halved

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup apple cider


  1. Lightly coat the basket of a 6-quart air-fryer with cooking spray. Combine sage, paprika, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Rub all over chops. Combine apple, green beans, oil and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper and pinch of salt in a large bowl.

  2. Arrange the chops and the bean mixture in the prepared basket. Cook at 400℉ for 5 minutes. Flip the chops and stir the bean mixture. Cook until the apples and beans are tender and browned on the edges and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the pork registers 145℉, about 5 minutes more.

  3. Meanwhile, bring cider just to a boil in a small saucepan. Boil gently, uncovered, until slightly syrupy and reduced to 2 tablespoons, about 7 minutes.

  4. Transfer the chops and the bean mixture to 2 plates. Drizzle with the cider syrup. Sprinkle with additional sage, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
