Complete the mise en scène with a sharp side salad scattered with fresh chives, and focaccia toast (buttered, bien sûr!).

Cook the pork
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork* dry with paper towel; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Cook, 3 to 5 min. per side, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Make the sauce
In the reserved pan, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium-high. Sauté ½ the apples, 1 to 2 min., until beginning to soften. Add the demi-glace, cream, ½ the vinegar, ⅓ cup water (double for 4 portions), ½ the remaining spices and S&P; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 2 to 3 min., until thickened.
