Pork Chops with Cinnamon Apples

This was originally a Cooking Light recipe, which I've had sitting around for years and am just now getting around to trying.  It was pretty simple, doesn't require a lot of ingredients, and was delicious!  Packed with all sorts of complementary flavors!  I served it with Spicy Roasted Potatoes and green beans.

Pork Chops with Cinnamon Apples

4 pork tenderloin chops (about 1/2" thick)
1 tsp dried rubbed sage
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 T canola oil
4 medium apples (tart are better), peeled and sliced into 1/4"-thick slices
1 T butter
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a small bowl combine the sage, salt, and pepper.  Rub onto both sides of chops.  Lightly spray a skillet with cooking spray, then add the canola oil.  Heat over medium-high heat, then add the seasoned chops.  Cook 3 minutes per side, or until done.  Set aside and cover.
In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat.  Add apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon, tossing to coat.  Cover and cook 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender.  Place apples over pork chops and serve.

Serves 4.
