Orange-Sage Pork Chops and Brussels Sprouts
Serves: Makes 4 servings
  • 4 (5-ounce) bone-in pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 small red onion, cut into wedges

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Pat chops dry with paper towels; sprinkle all over with ¾ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper.
  3. In a large ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add chops; cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Remove chops from skillet, reserving drippings in pan.
  4. Stir Brussels sprouts, onion, orange zest and sections, sage, and remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper into drippings until combined; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
