2-3applessuch as Granny Smith, McIntosh, or your favorite variety, peeled, cored and thickly (the key word is thick!) sliced
4pork chopsabout 1/2-inch thick, boneless or bone-in
1tablespoonchopped fresh sageor 1 teaspoon dried
Salt and pepper
1/2cupapple cider without preservative
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. I boiled the apple cider to reduce it a bit. Grease the bottom of a medium-size roasting pan or an ovenproof skillet (like our favorite cast iron skillet!) with the olive oil.
Arrange the apples on the bottom of the pan, layered as needed.
Place the pork chops on top.
Then sprinkle with the sage, salt and pepper and pour the cider on top.
