PORK CHOPS WITH APPLES
3 medium tart apples, such as Granny Smith
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
1 t. vegetable oil
4 pork chops
1/4 t. salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 C. apple cider or juice
Peel, core and thinly slice apples, and sprinkle with nutmeg.
In non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat, then add pork chops, salt and pepper. After about 5 minutes, turn chops to brown other side. After 5 minutes, add apples and cover. Lower heat and simmer another 5 to 10 minutes. Thickness of chops will determine cooking time; center of chop should be white, and juices should run clear.
Remove chops from pan to a serving plate. Pour in juice or cider, turning up heat as you stir juice and apples, then spoon onto pork chops.
