"Succulent pork loin chops are paired brilliantly with slices of tart apple cooked in a satin-smooth sauce of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. A few chopped pecans over the top make this a delectable autumn entree."

INGREDIENTS:

4 (3/4 inch) thick pork chops
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
4 tablespoons brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced
3 tablespoons pecans (optional) 

DIRECTIONS: 

1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees F. 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, 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. Cover dish and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Sprinkle with pecans when serving.
