4 pork chops with bone (about 6 ounces each), 1/2 inch thick
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 large unpeeled apple, cored, cut in half and sliced into ¼ inch thick slices
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
how to prepare
Rub ½ teaspoon of oil on both sides of each pork chop to insure an even coating. Sprinkle 1½ teaspoons of the Sweet & Spicy on both sides of each pork chop, patting in to insure even distribution on all sides.
Set aside and let marinate while preparing apples.
In a bowl, pour melted butter over the apples and sprinkle on 1 tablespoon the Sweet & Spicy mixing to insure an even coating.
Place the pork chops and apples in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with apples in between each chop. Bake at 475⁰F for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Place the pork chops on a warm plate with apples alongside. Pour pan drippings over the pork chops and serve immediately.
