Why I Love This Recipe

The sweetness of the apples and the hearty pork chops, topped with a spiced brown sugar glaze are the perfect dish to help set you off into the fall. you can make the glaze as sweet as you like, though 1/4-1/3 cup of brown sugar seems to be the sweet spot. Don't be afraid to mix up your selection of apples. Granny Smith, Honeycrisp and Fujis seem to be the popular selections

Ingredients You'll Need

4-6 Boneless Pork Chops
2-3 Apples, peeled and sliced (I used Granny Smith apples)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) Unsalted Butter
1/4-1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon, divided
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg, divided
1/2 tablespoon Cornstarch, optional
Salt and Ground Black Pepper, to taste
Fresh Rosemary, minced, garnish


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Peel, core and slice apples

Place sliced apples in the bottom of a large baking dish

Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg

Season pork chops with salt and pepper to your liking

Place pork chops on top of apple slices

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter and brown sugar, whisking until melted and incorporated

Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg into butter mixture

Also, whisk in cornstarch, if using
(Cornstarch is not essential, this is only used if you want a thicker glaze)

Pour mixture over pork chops and apple slices, then place in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until pork is cooked through

Remove from oven, sprinkle with fresh rosemary and enjoy
