Try something new Tuesdays

I was planning on blogging each night, but that hasn't happened, and I don't foresee that happening anytime soon.  But i'll try to at least once a week or when I try a new recipe.  Sunday we had steak, potatoes and a veggie.  Mexican Monday was taco night!  And here is tonight yummy meal:)



Caramel Apple Pork Chops


Ingredients

  • 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
  • 6-8 melted caramel squares
  • 2 tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons pecans (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C). Place a medium dish in the oven to warm.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. 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, melted caramel, 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.
