1
teaspoon dried sage leaves
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
medium onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices

1
medium unpeeled cooking apple, cored and cut into eighths
1/4

  1. Trim fat from pork. Mix sage, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the garlic; rub on both sides of pork.
  2. Cook pork in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat about 3 minutes on each side until brown. Place onion on pork. Pour broth around pork. Heat to boiling; reduce heat.
  3. Cut squash crosswise into 1-inch slices; remove seeds and fibers. Cut each slice into fourths. Place squash and apple on pork; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until pork is slightly pink when cut near bone and squash is tender.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Cut the cooking time in half by omitting the fresh acorn squash and instead microwaving frozen cooked squash as directed on the package to serve alongside the pork, onion and apple.
Serve-With
This skillet is a complete meal by itself. Just add some crusty hard rolls for hearty appetites and perhaps fudgy brownies for dessert.
