Yield: 4 servings

  • 4  Pork Chops

  • Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 large shallot, diced

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 teaspoon Old-Fashioned Mustard

  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cut into wedges

  • ¼ cup dried cranberries

  • 1 cup of Apple Cider beer

  • 2 twigs of rosemary (optional, for garnish)


  1. Season the pork chops with sea salt and pepper on both sides.

  2. Over high heat, heat two tablespoons olive oil on a large sautee pan, add the chops and sear on both sides, 2-3 minutes each side. Remove and reserve.

  3. On the same pan, reduce the heat to medium-low, add the shallots, honey and mustard, and cook until soft, stirring occasionally. Add apples and cranberries, and mix gently, then raise the heat to medium-high and return the pork to the pan. Add the hard cider, stirring occasionally until the apples slightly soft (but not mushy), about 5-8 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat, rest for 2-3 minutes, serve.
