Ingredients

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon ground allspice

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

6 bone-in pork chops (4 to 5 ounces each)

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 Gala apples, roughly chopped into 1-inch chunks

2 large leeks (white and light green parts), halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices

Directions

  1. Mix together the olive oil, allspice, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl to form a paste. Transfer the mixture to a large resealable plastic bag and add the pork chops, massaging the paste into the chops to coat. Marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the apples and leeks and season with salt and pepper. Add 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the leeks are tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove 3 pork chops from the marinade and cook until lightly browned, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove the pork chops to a plate and cook the remaining 3 chops.
  4. Place each pork chop on a plate and spoon the apple-leek mixture (including any juices) on top.
