1 1/2 teaspoons Sage, Rubbed
1 teaspoon Garlic,Minced
1 teaspoon Thyme Leaves
1/2 teaspoon Allspice, Ground
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick (about 1 1/4 pounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 red apples, thinly sliced
1/2 cup apple juice

1. Mix flour, all of the Spices and salt in small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with 1 tablespoon of the seasoned flour.
2. Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add pork chops; brown on both sides. Remove from skillet. Add onion; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender. Add apples; cook and stir 2 minutes.
3. Stir in juice, sugar and remaining seasoned flour until well mixed. Return pork chops to skillet. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until desired doneness.

I was not sure how the onions and apples would taste, but when they were done, they were so delicious.  The only thing I would do differently next time would be to marinate the pork chops ahead of time in maybe apple cider vinegar or apple juice with some of the seasonings above.  All the flavors were great, but the pork chops were just a little dry in the middle and I wanted them to be a little more savory.  I would make this again especially in the Fall, it was very tasty!
