Honey Roasted Pork Chops with Apples and Onions

This is an absolutely delicious and easy meal to make! The recipe is from The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook by Shannon Hayes. We love using pasture raised pork for this… I encourage you to find a local farmer who raised pastured pigs and then support them! A great resource for finding a farm near you is Local Harvest.

Honey Roasted Pork Chops with Apples and Onions
Serves 2

1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 teaspoons rubbed sage (I didn’t have any sage on hand, so I substituted with Marjoram)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pork chops (rib, shoulder, loin, and country ribs are all okay to use)
1/3 cup apple cider or juice
1 tart, firm apple, cored and cut into thick slices, but not peeled
1 small onion, thinly sliced into rings
1/4 cup raisins
2 tablespoons honey (we use raw honey)

Preheat oven to 350ĚŠ F.

Combine the salt, pepper, and sage; rub into the meat.

Pour the olive oil into a heated ovenproof skillet (we use cast iron), and sear the chops over medium heat, 1 minute per side or until browned. Remove from heat, add the cider, sliced apple, onion, and raisins. Drizzle with honey, cover and roas for 1 1/2 hours or until fork-tender.

    Thanks for the recipe, dearest daughter! I guess I will use DeeDee’s roaster for baking, as I don’t think my cast iron skillet has a top (???), But I will brown them in it as recommended.
