Caramel Apple Pork Chops

The very first post I did on this blog was my Pork Chop and Potato Casserole. My daughter-in-law, Brandi, told me she had a great pork chop recipe that her family and friends love. Brandi shared the recipe with me and I'd like to share it with you. I made it and it is very good, especially if you like cooked apples. I think it would be delicious with any of your favorite apples and not just Granny Smith apples. Now that fall is approaching, apple season will be upon us. I think this will be a good recipe for your family to enjoy.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops
4 - 6 pork chops
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Garlic salt to taste
Pepper to taste (I added a little bit of salt, too)
4 Tablespoons butter (I used a little less)
4 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced

Heat oil in a large skillet and brown chops for 1 minute on each side. (Brandi said she actually skips this step, but I didn't.)

Place pork chops in a 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper (and salt if you'd like).

In medium size skillet melt butter and add brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook 1 - 2 minutes over medium heat. Remove from stove and add apple slices. Stir to coat and pour this apple mixture over the pork chops.

Bake, covered, at 350 for 30 - 35 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes or until done.

  1. This is one of my favorites! We serve it with mashed potatoes and sauteed cabbage.
