  1. Slice Apples.

  4. Melt 4 tablespoons of Coconut Oil in a large fry pan over Medium heat. Add Apples, Shallots and Sage. Sauté for 5 min. Remove Apple Sauté from pan and set aside.

  5. Show your Chops some love, rub a generous amount of Cinnamon & Salt onto both sides.

  6. Melt the remanding 1 tablespoons Coconut Oil in the fry pan.

  7. Place your Chops in fry pan.

  8. Sear on both sides for 2 minutes.

  9. Measure out ¼ White Wine.
