How to make it

  • Sprinkle salt and pepper over both sides of pork slices.
  • Heat oil until shimmering in heavy-bottomed pan, at least 10 inches across bottom, over medium-high heat, swirling pan to distribute oil.
  • Working in batches of no more than six slices to avoid overcrowding, sear medallions without moving them until brown on one side, about a minute (oil should sizzle, but not smoke).
  • Turn medallions with tongs to avoid scraping off the sear; sear until meat is mostly opaque at sides, firm to the touch, and well browned, about a minute.
  • Transfer pork to plate.
  • Melt butter in pan in which pork was cooked over medium-high heat, swirling to distribute.
  • Add apple and onion; sauté until apple starts to brown, about 4 minutes.
  • Add cider and applejack or brandy; boil, scraping pan bottom with wooden spatula to loosen browned bits, until liquid reduces to a glaze, about 2½ minutes.
  • Increase heat to high; add stock, sage, and any accumulated pork juices; boil until liquid reaches consistency of maple syrup, about 3 minutes.
  • Add cream; boil until reduced by half, about 2 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium; return pork to pan, turning meat to coat.
  • Simmer to heat pork thoroughly and blend flavors, about 3 minutes.
  • Adjust seasonings, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer pork to serving plate and spoon sauce over meat.
  • Serve immediately.

    Apples really go great with pork - your recipe is well described and sounds delightful! Definitely saving to try...I just got to get me some applejack or apple brandy - thank you for posting for us pork lovers - and the added sage I know also helps really create a complex tasty dish! Well done!

    If you can't find applejack at your local liquor store (I assume they have local liquor stores in Omaha -- it's been well over 40 years since I was last there); otherwise, apple brandy or just plain brandy will work fine. Calvados works as well.

    I think this is a recipe I could use my Calvados in place of the brandy or applejack - this sounds very flavorful!

    I know there's a misspelled word in the name of the recipe. I have tried four times to correct the misspelling, but so far have had no success.
