Ingredients

  • 4 New York (top loin) pork chops 3/4-inch thick
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 1/8 t. cinnamon
  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 tart red apples, cored and sliced into 1/2-inch wedges

Instructions

  • Remove chops from refrigerator up to an hour before cooking.  The closer to room temperature the better.  Heat skillet over medium-high heat.  Place chops in skillet and season with salt and pepper as desired.  Saute chops for 7 minutes, turning only once, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F, followed by a 3-minute rest time.  Remove; keep warm.
    In a small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon, add some nutmeg if you like.  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.  You may drizzle remaining sauce over the chops and sprinkle with pecans if you'd like.
