Caramel Apple Pork Chops

POINTS® Value: 5
Servings: 4


2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar Twin
1-2 Packets Splenda (optional)
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1 Tablespoon Fat Free Margarine Spread
2 Cups Peeled and Chopped Apples
4 (4 oz.) Pork Loin Center Loin Chops
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tablespoon Chopped Pecans


In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar twin, Splenda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Add margarine to the skillet along with the sugar mixture and apples. Cook over medium heat until the apples are tender and the sauce has thickened. Remove to a bowl and cover to keep warm. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper and cook over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally, or until no longer pink inside. Place each pork chop onto a plate and divide the apple mixture evenly on top of each chop. Sprinkle each pork chop with 1/2 tablespoon of chopped pecans and serve.
