This roasted pork chops recipe call for Cortland apples, but you could use any apple variety you like. Try to pick apples that are in season and crisp to ensure that the apples can withstand the cooking temperature in the oven.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a bag or container, make the marinade for the pork chops. Combine mustard, olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and two sprigs of thyme.
  3. Season the pork chops with sea salt and fresh pepper on both sides. IAdd the pork chops to the marinade and allow to marinade overnight or at least 30 minutes before cooking (if time permits).
  4. While the oven is heating, prepare your apples. Quarter, core and chop apples into small cube as evenly sized as possible. Add the apples to a bowl and toss with cinnamon and leaves of two remaining sprigs of thyme. Set aside.
  5. Remove the pork chops from marinade and press the sage leaves into each side for searing.
  6. In an oven-proof skillet melt butter on medium to high heat, and add pork chops to the pan and sear for 1-2 minutes per side. Just long enough to sear in the flavour.
  7. Add diced apples to the pan, toss gently to coat in any marinade, however it is not needed. They will be softned and cooked in the oven.
  8. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast for 10-12 minutes, until cooked through, and apples are tender but still crunchy.
  9. Serve with steamed vegetables and enjoy!
