4 boneless pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Salt and black pepper, to taste
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
2 medium tart red apples, cored and sliced into 1/2-inch wedges
3 tablespoons chopped pecans
Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chops, 5-6 minutes, turning
occasionally, until both sides are evenly browned. Remove; keep warm.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar,salt, pepper, cinnamon and
nutmeg. Add butter to skillet; stir in brown sugar mixture and apples.
Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes or just until apples are tender. Remove
apples with a slotted spoon and arrange on top of chops; keep warm.
Continue cooking mixture in skillet, uncovered, until sauce thickens
slightly. Spoon sauce over apples and chops. Sprinkle with pecans.
The flavor of the classic apple treat is a perfect fall taste for this
meal. Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans.
