Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: serves 4
  • 6-8 boneless pork chops (1/2 inch to ¾ inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (A firm apple like a Granny Smith is best)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Heat the oil in a large skillet, over medium high heat and then brown the pork chops (about 1 minute on each side).
  2. Remove the browned chops from the skillet and set them aside. In the same skillet, over medium heat, melt butter and add the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir until the sauce is completely combined and then add the apples.
  3. Cook the apples in the caramel sauce for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the pork chops back to the skillet and sprinkle with the chopped pecans.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until pork chops are cooked through. The apples will be tender and the sauce will be bubbly. Spoon the apples and sauce over the pork chops when serving.
