Total Time:

35 Minutes


2 - 4 People


  • 2 Pork Chops
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter divided
  • 15 ounces 1/2 jar apple butter, divided (more if desired)
  • 2 apples cored and sliced. No need to peel them.
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder or just chili powder
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream


  • Season both sides of each pork chop with salt and pepper.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium high heat in a large skillet. Add the pork chops and cook each side for 3 minutes. Place pork on a plate and allow to rest while you cook the apples.
  • Using the same skillet, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the apple slices and allow to cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Pour in 1/4 of the jar (7 1/2 ounces) of apple butter (you can use a bit more if you want, but it does get pretty sweet), brown sugar, and chili powder. Stir to combine. Add in the cream and continue to stir. Bring to a light boil.
  • Add the pork chops, pushing aside the apples to make sure the bottoms of each pork chop are touching the skillet. Spoon a tablespoon of apple butter onto each side of each pork chop as you cook.
  • Cook each pork chop for about 4 more minutes or each side, adding a tablespoon of apple butter to each side as you cook. Cook until pork is cooked through to your liking.
  • Serve hot with the apple mixture spooned over the pork.
  • Enjoy!
  • Serve the chops with the apple mixture spooned on top
