Brown sugar and butter create a sweet sauce that marries well with pork chops and apples. Choose a tart apple for more flavor and contrast. No matter your apple choice these apple brown sugar pork chops are a family favorite!

4 - boneless pork loin chops, cut 3/4 to 1 inch thick
Ground black pepper
2 - tablespoons butter
1 - cup thinly sliced red apple (1 medium)
1/4 - cup chopped pecans
2 - tablespoons packed brown sugar

Trim fat from chops. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper; set aside.

In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat until it sizzles. Add apple; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Push apple to sides of skillet. Add chops; cook for 4 minutes. Turn chops, moving apple aside as needed. Spoon apple slices over chops. Sprinkle with pecans and brown sugar.

Cook, covered, for 2 to 4 minutes more or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of chops registers 145 degrees F. Serve chops with apple slices and cooking juices.
