In a small bowl, soak the apricots in the brandy. This can be done ahead of time, even overnight. Gently nick or score the outside band of fat on the pork chop, or score crosshatch marks on one side of the pork chop. Mix together the cumin, ginger, salt and papper. Season the pork chops with the mixture. Add pork chops, cook 3 minutes each side until browned and not quite cooked all the way through. Remove pork chops to plate . Return skillet to medium-low heat and add the butter and onions. Gently saute onions for 5 minutes. Make sure they do not burn. Add the dried apricots and saute another minute. Turn heat to medium-high and pour in the brandy that the apricots were soaked in. Let simmer for 1 minute. Pour in chicken broth. Return the pork chops back into the pan, snuggling them in the sauce. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes until the inside of pork chop is barely blush-pink.
