Recipe: Pork Chops & Apples & Roasted Potatoes

Pork Chops & Apples

Ok, so this isn't the best picture.
But this recipe was really good and I added it to my recipe box.
Have you used those McCormick Recipe Inspirations with the recipes on the back?
It was the first time I used one and it turned out really great.
I decided to start with the McCormick's Apple & Sage Pork Chops.

What You Will Need:
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
4 boneless pork chops, 1 inch thick
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 red apples, thinly sliced
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tbsp. brown sugar

1. Mix flour, all of the Spices and salt in small bowl.
Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with 1 tablespoon of the seasoned flour.
2. Cook pork chops in hot oil in large skillet on medium-high heat until
browned on both sides. Remove from skillet. Add onion; cook and stir
3 minutes or until tender. Add apples; cook and stir 2 minutes.
3. Stir in juice, sugar and remaining seasoned flour until well mixed.
Return pork chops to skillet. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low;
cover and simmer 5 minutes or until desired doneness.

Result: With the combination of the sauce and the seasonings, it was really tasty.
I really like the addition of the apples and the sage in this dish.
It was sweet, and sour (with the apple) and spicy with the sage and garlic.
I give this dish a thumbs up.

Want to make this dinner even more awesome?
Add some roasted potatoes to the dinner table!

Oven Roasted Rosemary Potatoes

Scrub the potatoes and cut out any bruised parts.
Cut the potatoes in quarters unless they are small.
Put the potatoes on a baking sheet or 9 x 13 baking dish.
Drizzle potatoes with olive oil (about 2 tbs.).
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle with dried rosemary and thyme. (about 1 Tbs. each).
Cook for 30-40 minutes until golden brown at 400 degrees.
