“This is one of my favorite ways to eat pork. Pork chops are crusted in pecans and breadcrumbs, then topped with a delicious homemade pumpkin butter. (You can always use store bought pumpkin butter if you can find it but homemade is always better).”

Original recipe yields 4 pork chops

Directions

  1. Whisk together pumpkin puree, apple juice, sugar, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon in a saucepan until smooth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the mixture has reached the consistency of applesauce. About 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, pulse pecans and bread crumbs in a food processor until the pecans are finely chopped. Pour into a shallow dish, and press pork chops into the mixture to coat.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add breaded pork chops and cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve the pork chops with a dollop of pumpkin butter.

The pumpkin butter was delicious! I had trouble getting the breading to crisp up and get golden and stay on the chops, but then I seem to have that trouble with anything breaded. (Guess I don't know the secret to breading.) Anyway, it tasted really good, my family loved it, and I would definitely make this again!

I have been cooking for years. The best way that I found to make a great crust is a mixture of mayo and dijon mustard with a few drops of water mixed together, dip pork chops, chicken or even fish in it. In another bowl pour panko (found in oriental section) bread crumbs and seasoned bread crumbs together with pecans or for Italian dishes grated parmesan cheese. Heat a pan with enough oil just to cover meat 1/2 way.Cook until crisp then finish in oven.

This is a grat recipe. I never tried it with Pumpkin Butter before, it's delicious As far as "getting the breading to crisp up and get golden and stay on the chops", the best thing to do is to add a egg to the bread crumb and pecans and then coat the pork chops with this mix. The egg will help it stay in place.
