  • Summary

    Sautéing is another fast way to make a meal, especially when the pan juices are turned into a sweet and savory sauce, as they are here. This comforting dish features an array of autumn ingredients—apples, fennel, and sweet potatoes—roasted in the oven to caramelize lightly and bring their sugars to the forefront. The sauce, which mingles apple cider with the meaty browned bits in the skillet, is sharpened with a bit of Dijon mustard to balance the sweetness.

    Ingredients

    • 4 boneless pork loin chops (each about 7 ounces and 1 inch thick)
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 cup apple cider or apple juice
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 2 pieces
    • 1 pound red-skinned sweet potatoes (yams), peeled and cut lengthwise in half, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces
    • 2 Pink Lady or Fuji apples, cored and cut lengthwise into eighths
    • 1 large fennel bulb, trimmed and cut lengthwise into eighths
    • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, cut into 1-inch pieces
