Apple Fennel Pork Chops

These pork chops are a quick and simple dinner that can be whiped up in less than 30 minutes. Lean pork is high in iron, vitamin B12 and zinc. Combined with tasty apples and crisp fennel, it is an impressive and lean dinner. Fresh sage compliments the dish and intensifies its flavors. As always, it is critical that you thoroughly cook pork. Google internal temperatures and use a meat thermometer if you want to be absolutely sure.
