For the chops
  • 1 tablespoons - chopped fresh sage, or 1 tsp. dried sage
  • 1 cloves - garlic, minced, about 1 tsp.
  • 1/2 teaspoons - salt
  • - freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 - 1/4-inch thick bone-in pork loin chops, about 8 oz. each, lean cuts, remove fat
  • 2 teaspoons - olive oil
  • For slaw
  • 1 teaspoons - olive oil, optional
  • 1 - large onion, cut in half, thinly sliced into half-moons
  • 1 - large Granny Smith apple, cut in half, cored, coarsely shredded
  • 1 teaspoons - chopped fresh sage, or 1/2 tsp. dried sage
  • 1/2 heads - green cabbage, cored, coarsely shredded (about 9 cups)
  • 3 - large carrots, coarsely shredded (about 3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons - cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoons - salt
  • 1/4 cups - fat-free low-sodium chicken broth, or bouillon cube
  • Directions:

    To make the chops, combine the sage, garlic, salt and a few grinds of pepper in a small bowl. Rub this mixture all over the pork chops and let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.

    Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chops and brown on both sides, 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to a plate.

    To make the slaw, carefully wipe out the pan. Heat the oil over medium heat and add onion, apple, and sage. Cook, stirring a few times, until softened and golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Add the cabbage, carrots, vinegar and salt and continue cooking until the cabbage and carrots begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

    Add the broth and return the pork chops to the pan, burying them in the vegetable mixture. Cover and cook just until the pork chops have a slight blush in the center, 5-7 minutes longer.

    To serve, arrange the warm slaw on individual plates and top with a pork chop and pan juices.
