A Quick Meal

This recipe has been in my collection for a couple years. I never use to pull it out because it took so long to make. It use to be marinaded and rubbed like bbq. But one night, I got a call from my husband saying his boss and his boss' wife were coming to dinner—and oh yeah, I only had an hour to shop and cook. I thought the pork would be perfect, so I modified the recipe for quick service, and it turned out even better then I hoped.

Yields: 4 Servings


  • 4 Pork Chops, 1 in
  • 1 C Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 T Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 T Cayanne Pepper
  • 1 T Paprika
  • 1 T Black Pepper
  • 1 t Ground Ginger
  • 1 t Ground Clove
  • 1 t Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t Star Anise Extract
  • 2 Apples, Green
  • 1/2 Onion, Medium
  • Butter

Simple and Straightforward

  1. Slice your apples and onion, thinly and lengthwise. Heat your pan to low-medium with butter in your pan.
  2. While your pan is heating up, mix your sugar and spices. It will be a little moist from the dark brown sugar and extract.
  3. Coat your pork chops in the mixture and cook in the butter. You'll want to keep your pork chops moving so your sugar doesn't burn.
  4. When your pork is done, do not turn off the pan just yet. Add more butter if you need it. Put the apples and onion in the pan with the drippings and cook until just translucent. Serve with the pork chops.
