2 (8-ounce) pork rib chops, about 1-inch thick

1 Tablespoon chopped fresh sage

1 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

4 Tablespoons vegetable oil

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup finely chopped celery

1/2 cup crumbled, toasted cornbread (or cornbread stuffing mix)

1/2 cup finely diced green apple, peeled, if desired

2 Tablespoons dried cranberries

1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons chicken stock

2 Tablespoons bourbon
