Zesty Pork Chops

The first time I made this pork chop dish was because I was searching for a recipe that would use the apple that was left in my fruit bowl and the only meat that I had left in my freezer.  I happened to have a jar of Picante sauce that I had bought on sale, so this recipe fit the bill perfectly.  I have made it multiple times since then, as it is a tasty recipe that doesn't take too long, doesn't leave the chops at all dry, and has a delicious sweet yet tangy taste that my whole family enjoys.

  • 4-5 pork chops (about 1.5 lbs)
  • All purpose flour
  • 1 jar (12 oz) Pace Picante sauce
  • 2.5 T packed brown sugar
  • 1 apple, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch thickness
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  1. Coat the pork with four.  Stir together the Picante sauce, brown sugar, and apple pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet; cook the pork chops for about 5 minutes on each side, until browned. 
  3. Pour the sauce mixture over the pork chops; Cover and cook for 20 minutes, turning once during cooking.

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 5 minutes prep, 30 minutes total cooking
