    Cook the millet
    In a medium pot, melt 1 tbsp of butter on medium-high (double for 4 portions). Add the millet and toast, 2 to 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Add 1 cup of water (double for 4 portions); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat and let simmer, 15 to 18 minutes, until tender. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

    Cook the apples
    While the millet cooks, in a large pan, melt 1 tbsp of butter (double for 4 portions) and a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the apples and spice blend; season with S&P. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, until the apples are tender. Add ½ the vinegar and cook for 1 more minute. Transfer to a bowl and wipe out the pan.

    Cook the pork
    In the same pan, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil on medium-high (double for 4 portions). Add the garlic and the sage leaves. Cook, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant and the sage leaves are crispy. Remove the garlic and sage from the pan and reserve. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towel; season with S&P. Add the seasoned pork chops to the pan and cook, 4 to 5 minutes per side, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a serving plate and let rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.

    Finish & serve
    In a bowl, combine the remaining vinegar and 3 tbsp of olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Add the millet and arugula and toss to thoroughly combine. Divide the millet-arugula salad and finished pork chops between your plates. Top the pork with the sautéed apples. Garnish with the fried sage and garlic. Bon appétit!
