McCormick's have great seasoning packets with recipes on the back and the seasonings pre-measured in little containers. http://www.mccormick.com/Products/Recipe-Inspirations.aspx
I bought the Apple & Sage Pork Chop one at the store to make sure I liked it before buying all the seasonings. Now that I like it, I will make sure to have all 5 seasonings on hand instead of buying the pre measured packets. You can buy the packet yourself, or if you have the ingredients on hand, you can just follow the recipe...
Recipe Inspirations Package (They use all McCormick brand obviously, but I'm sure you can use whatever...)
*1 1/2 tsp Rubbed Sage
*1 tsp Minced Garlic
*1 tsp Thyme Leaves
*1/2 tsp Ground Allspice
* 1/2 tsp Paprika
*1 T flour
*1 tsp salt
*4 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick (about 1 1/4 lbs)
*2 T olive oil (I used organic canola oil)
*1 medium onion (I didn't have one on had, so I omitted this)
*2 red apples, thinly sliced
*1/2 cup apple juice
*1 T brown Sugar
1. Mix Flour, all of spices in package, and salt in small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with 1 T of the seasoned flour.
2. Cook pork chops in hot oil in large skillet on medium-high heat until browned 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 a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until desired doneness.
I served this with a side of roasted potatoes and steamed veggies. We REALLY liked it! It was different and very flavorful! Since this one was such a hit, I will definitely be trying more of McCormick's recipe ideas as well as buying their brand seasoning!
