SERVINGS

 

Ingredients:

For the rub:

4 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp rubbed sage

For the pork chops:

4 Farmview Market boneless pork chops ~ 1 inch thick

1 cup Farmview Market apple butter

1/2 cup water

1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp organic brown sugar

1/2 tsp kosher salt

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

3 Tbsp Banner Butter

1 small onion, thinly sliced

2 cloves minced garlic

2 medium honey crisp or granny smith apples, thinly sliced

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh thyme

For the grits:

1 cup Rock House Farm Grits (follow instructions on package for additional ingredients needed and cooking process)

Directions:

  • Stir together the rub mixture in a small bowl.
  • Rub the spice mixture evenly on both sides of each pork chop. Cover and refrigerate for 90 minutes.
  • Whisk together the apple butter, water, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar and salt and set aside.
  • Follow instructions on the Rock House Farm grits bag and make 4 servings of grits.
  • While the grits are cooking, preheat vegetable oil in a large skillet to medium high. Add the pork chops to the pan and sear for 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and cover with foil.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and add the butter. Add onion and sauté for about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in garlic, apples, and thyme and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the apple butter mixture and return the pork chops to the pan, covering in some of the sauce. Cook over low heat until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145F (about 4 minutes on each side).
  • Serve the pork chops over grits with apples/apple butter mixture sauce on top.
