Directions
Pork Chops:

Wash and season the chops with salt, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, coriander, olive oil, sesame seed oil, and dried herbs. Marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours or up to 24 hours.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Remove chops from marinade and place on the preheated grill. Grill chops on both sides for about 2 minutes each side. Transfer to an ovenproof dish and place in the oven until done. Set aside and keep warm.

Apples:

Raise oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the apples in a large bowl and add half of the butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Mix well and let sit for 20 minutes.

Place apples on a greased baking sheet and pour the remaining butter over the apples. Put in the oven and roast until caramelized and fork tender. When serving, pour the juices over the apples.

Brussels Sprouts:

Cut ends off Brussels sprouts and wash them. In a pasta pot with insert bring the water to a boil. Add Brussels sprouts, cover, and steam for 7 minutes. Drain.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Add the onions and saute until caramelized. Add the Brussels sprouts, onion powder, garlic powder, dried herbs, paprika, and bouillon cubes, crushing the cubes to combine with the onion mixture. Saute Brussels sprouts until browned. Lower heat, cover and simmer until Brussels sprouts are fork tender. Serve with pork chops and apples.
