- 3 apples Use your favorite or whatever’s in the fridge
- ½ C brown sugar
- ¼ C water
- 1 t cinnamon
- ½ t nutmeg
- 4 or 5 whole cloves
- 2 bone-in Berkshire pork chops (of course you can substitute)
- 2 T extra virgin olive oil Use the best oil, these are great chops
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Slice the apples into wedges.
In a medium bowl, mix the brown sugar, water, and spices.
Add apples and spice mix in a non-stick or cast iron skillet and cook over medium heat until the apples have softened and cooked through. Stir occasionally.
Season the chops generously with salt and pepper.
In a non-stick or cast iron skillet, heat the oil to medium high and add the chops. Sear on both sides, turn heat down, cover and cook until internal temperature is 135°F (or no longer bright pink interior).
Remove from skillet and let rest for 5 minutes. The chops will continue to cook and you will have tender, juicy medium-rare chops.
