Updated Sep 24, 2014

Ingredients

  • 1 medium unpeeled cooking apple, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 bone-in pork rib chops, about 3/4 inch thick (about 1/4 pound each)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place apples in 1 1/2-quart rectangular casserole. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cover with foil; bake 15 minutes.
  • 2
    Trim fat from edge of pork. Spray 8- or 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes. Cook pork in hot skillet about 6 minutes, turning once, until light brown.
  • 3
    Place pork in single layer on apples. Cover and bake 10 to 12 minutes or until pork is no longer pink when cut near the bone, meat thermometer reads 145°F and apples are tender.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Follow cook times for pork carefully. Today’s pork is lean and requires shorter cooking times. Overcooking pork will make it tough.
  • tip 2
    Use a sharp knife to cut most of the fat from pork chops, being careful not to cut into the meat.
  • tip 3
    Serve hearty rye bread and pickled beets to complete an Oktoberfest menu.
