  • For sauce, add butter to skillet; heat over medium heat until no longer foamy. Add onions and chestnuts to hot butter mixture; cook about 5 minutes or until golden brown, shaking skillet occasionally. Stir in garlic and thinly sliced or dried sage; cook about 30 seconds more or until fragrant. Add broth, Marsala, vinegar, and honey. Bring to boiling. Cook, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until liquid begins to turn syrupy, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits from bottom of skillet. Stir in dried plums and cooked bacon; season to taste with pepper.

Instructions Checklist
  • Return pork chops and any accumulated juices to the skillet; spoon sauce in skillet over chops. Cover skillet; reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 12 to 15 minutes or until pork is cooked through.* Serve sauce over pork. If desired, garnish with small sage leaves.


The U.S. Department of Agriculture has dropped pork's final cooking temperature from 160°F to 145°F. This is big news for lean pork, which can easily dry out when cooked to 160°F. While there may be a pink tinge to the meat at 145°F, it is completely safe. (Do let pork cooked to 145°F stand for 3 minutes before serving.) You can always cook the pork to 155°F for a less pink center.
