Season the chops with salt and pepper to taste.
Get out a large Skillet and heat the oil on medium high heat.
Add the pork chops and cook for 2 minutes. Turn them once halfway through, then place them on a plate.
Place the apples into the skillet and cook them until browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Add to the plate with the pork.
Place the heat on medium. Put butter and shallots into the skillet. Cook for about 3 minutes. Add in garlic and sage sprigs. Cook for 30 seconds until fragrant.
Add the 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar, scraping the pan to loosen the brown bits.
Add in the cider and simmer.
Put the pork chops and their juice back in the pan and reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan. Simmer about 10 minutes, or until the pork reaches 145°.
Add the apples during the last 5 minutes. Put the pork and apples onto a plate and set aside.
Place the heat on medium high. Simmer everything until it's reduced by half.
Next, add the cream, mustard, chopped sage, and 1/2 teaspoon vinegar and whisk it. Simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.
Put the pork and apples back into the skillet. Serve.
