Pork Chops with Apple Slaw

 The combination of cabbage & apple with pork is simply delicious!
 If you are not familiar with Ellie Krieger and are looking for some delicious & healthy recipes, I would encourage you to try a couple of her interesting recipes!

Pork & Slaw:

4 teaspoons fresh sage, divided
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt, divided
Freshly ground black pepper
4 pork chops with bone-in
1 large Vidalia onion
1 large Granny Smith apple (peeled, cored, & sliced)
1/2 head cabbage
3 large carrots
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

Combine 3 teaspoons sage, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of fresh pepper.  Rub this mixture over the pork chops and let stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, thinly slice the onion, apple and cabbage and julienne the carrots.

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in large frying pan until very warm, add the chops and brown on both sides.  Remove chops and wipe the pan thoroughly.

Heat remaining olive oil over moderate heat and add the onion, apples and remaining fresh sage.  Cook until mixture is soft and golden brown, stirring occasionally.  Add the cabbage, carrots, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon salt and continue cooking until the cabbage and carrots begin to soften.  Add the broth and return the chops to the pan (under the veggie mixture).  Cover and cook just until pork is done. 

Place a small amount of slaw on serving plate and top with a pork chop and place more slaw on top!

Your home will smell divine!
