New Month, New Blog - Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Well, I have honed my writing skills and now I am working on my photography skills.  I am once again changing the way I am doing my blog and I now feel that I am on the right track for what I am trying to accomplish. 

As you will notice I have added a couple of new items on the right, A joke of the day, A quote of the day and a tip of the day.  I hope you will find these items not only put a smile on your face but also help to make your day a little bit better.

As many of you know I am working on writing a series of cookbooks, the first one in the series is geared toward easier recipes for the "Non-cook".  That does not mean that those of you that are way more experienced, and know what a kitchen is used for, can't try them out yourself.  I will, on occasion, put in a more complicated and time consuming recipe for the more daring cook.

So let's get started and have some fun.  As always, remember I welcome feed back and comments.  Let me know what you may have changed in the recipe to make it your own or if you made it just as I posted.  Well let's get cookin'.
Caramel Apple Pork Chops

  • 4 boneless pork chops, 3/4 inch thick

  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 2 medium tart red apples, cored and sliced into 1/2 inch wedges

  • 6 tablespoons chopped pecans (optional)
Heat skillet over medium-high heat.  Saute chops, 5-6 minutes, turning occasionally, until both sides are evenly browne.  Remove from skillet and place in a pre-heated 200 degree oven.   

   In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Add butter to skillet.

Add the apples to the skillet.  Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes or just until the apples are tender.  Remove apples with a slotted sapoon and arrange on top of chops; place them back into the warm oven.  Continue cooking mixture in the skillet, uncovered, until the sauce thickens slightly.  Spoon sauce over apples and chops.  Sprinkle with pecans.


Enjoy and have a blessed day!!!!!!
