  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, 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.

Per previous reviews, I doubled the sauce but not the apples. I also followed another recommendation and put the cooked pork chops in a 13x9 pan and then poured the sauce and apples over top an...

FABULOUS! Of course with the alterations I made I might as well submit a new recipe, but here is what I did. Forget the whole "oven thing" and use 2 skillets, one for the chops and one for the a...

These were fabulous. My husband said they have usurped his old favorite for the best pork chops dish EVER! I made 6 chops but made enough sauce for 20. I sprinkled the chops w/ Paula Deen's hous...

Good, but needed more kick to it. I think it would be better if the pork was marinated before hand because it lacked flavor. I also didn't end up with very much "sauce" at the end so perhaps y...
