Default Caramel Apple Pork Chops

I found this recipe on and made it last night. Very easy and very tasty! (If I did anything different than the recipe, I put it in parentheses)


* 4 (3/4 inch) thick pork chops
* 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
* 2 tablespoons brown sugar
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

* 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
* 2 tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced
* 3 tablespoons pecans (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C). Place a medium dish in the oven to warm. (Instead of a "dish", I used another skillet)

2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. (I only set it to medium) Brush chops lightly with oil and place in hot pan. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally, or until done. Transfer to the warm dish, and keep warm in the preheated oven.

3. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, salt and pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add butter to skillet, and stir in brown sugar mixture and apples. Cover and cook until apples are just tender. Remove apples with a slotted spoon and arrange on top of chops. Keep warm in the preheated oven.

4. Continue cooking sauce uncovered in skillet, until thickened slightly. Spoon sauce over apples and chops. Sprinkle with pecans. (I had the pecans on the counter, and forgot to put them on! Ugh.)

Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the apples in the skillet. Well, I did take one, but the lid was on. HA!

Future changes:
- the next time I make this, I will cut the apple slices in half or maybe even thirds (only for aesthetics)
- I will increase the amount of butter/brown sugar. The sauce was awesome. A larger quantity to pour over the chops would have been even better.

Nice. That looks like fried okra on the side?

Yep. Fried okra and mashed taters.

I wonder if anybody would be interested in a fried okra recipe?
