Apple Cider Glazed Porkchops with Cream Sauce

I love fall!  It is by far my favorite season.  This fall has been insane weather wise.  Last week, Superstorm Sandy graced us with her presence, destroying homes and beaches and tearing down power lines.  Today we were surprised with a Nor'easter and this is the view from our front door:

The round blob at the top left of the staircase is my pumpkin...  RIP pumpkin! 

One of my favorite dishes in the fall is pork chops.  I love them any way, but they are especially delicious when pan fried.  Enter Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops with Cream Sauce. 

The ingredients:
Two center cut pork chops
2 tablespoons Montreal Steak seasoning (I use pre-made, but you can make your own)* you may wish to use less, I like lots of flavor and texture.
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 cup apple cider
1 tablespoon sour cream

1. Heat a skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. 
2. Sprinkle the Montreal Steak Seasoning over both sides of the pork chops and place in the skillet. Cover the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes. 

3. Flip the pork chops and fry until they are cooked through.
4. Remove the pork chops to a plate and cover them.  Turn the burner heat to high.
5. Take the apple cider and pour into the hot skillet.  Using tongs or a spoon, de-glaze the bottom of the pan. 

6. Add the sour cream, mix thoroughly and reduce to low heat while the cream sauce thickens, about 3-4 minutes. 

7. Top the pork chops with the cream sauce and serve with apple sauce and carrots, or whatever you would like. 

This meal is relatively quick to assemble, and so delicious.  Mr. Pie Plate loves it, and he is a picky eater, so it is a successful meal!
