Pork loin chops, seasoned with paprika, sage, thyme and spices then lightly pan fried and served with homemade applesauce. When my applesauce was simmering in the crock pot, I knew I would be serving it with pork chops. I served them with buttermilk mashed potatoes and an Autumn Salad with Pears on the side.

Ingredients

  • 4 thin (14 oz boneless pork loin chops, center cut)
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour (leave out for gluten free)
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce for serving on the side

Instructions

  • Season pork chops with paprika, garlic powder, sage, thyme, salt and fresh pepper to taste.
  • Place flour on a small flat plate and lightly pat the chops with flour, shaking off any excess flour so they are lightly coated.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add butter when the pan is hot.
  • When the butter melts, place chops in the skillet and cook 3 1/2 to 4 minutes.
  • Turn over and cook an additional 3 - 4 minutes, or until the internal temp is 145° F.
  • Remove from the pan and set on a platter to rest for three minutes.
