intermediate

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup muddled fresh Wish Farms blueberries
  • 1/4 cup muddled fresh Wish Farms blackberries
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 3-4 ounce bone-in pork chops
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard or whole-grain Dijon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 medium apples thinly sliced 
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced

Directions

  • Season both sides of pork chops with kosher salt and black pepper and rub the muddled berries onto the meat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to large pan, and heat over medium-high heat. Add pork chops to pan and sear 3-5 minutes per side, (depending on the thickness) or until pork chops are mostly done. Chops will continue cooking in the sauce later.
  • Remove pork chops to a plate.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together chicken stock and mustard, set aside.
  • Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan, then add apples and onions. Cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt, pepper, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Stir to combine.
  • Pour in stock mixture, using a wooden spoon to gently scrape the bottom of the pan to release any brown bits (those are full of great flavor).
  • Slide pork chops back into the pan, nestling them down in between the apples.
  • Cook 2-3 minutes, until pork chops are finished cooking and liquid has reduced by half.
  • Enjoy!
