How to make it
- Season the chops with sea salt and pepper and run with olive oil.
- Heat a large frying pan over a medium, high heat.
- When hot add the chops and fry for 1 minute.
- Turn the chops over and add the apples and onion to the pan. Turn down the heat to medium, low.
- Keep turning the chops every minute until done, about 8 minutes. Also keep the apples and onions moving to prevent them sticking.
- Remove the chops from the pan and keep warm.
- Turn up the heat and when the pan is hot, add the cider which should boil immediately.
- Reduce the cider by half, and then add the stock and chopped sage.
- Reduce this by half again then add the butter.
- Remove the pan from the heat and divide the apples and onions between two plates.
- Place the chops on top of the apple and onions. Add the mash and green beans to the plate.
- Pour the gravy over the chops and mash and serve.
