I made these pork chops for dinner one night when the Angel Face was visiting.  She loves pork chops and she really loves baked beans and she really, really loves baked potatoes.  It was a very brown dinner, but very delicious and she was very, very happy.

I happened to have a bag of pecan meal in my freezer but if you don't you can make your own by toasting pecan halves or pieces and giving them a whirr in the food processor.

  • 1 T. olive oil

  1. Great way to use pecan meal! Plus pecans and apples go so well together.

  2. I'm all in for brown dinners! I have a big bag of pecan meal just looking for recipes!

    1. I would have liked to see some green and or orange in there but all the major food groups were included and the family was happy.

  3. Pecan meal is great for breading. And I always need fresh pork chop ideas. This will be made soon in my house.

  4. This looks like the perfect fall meal - love, love, love apples with pork!

  5. Looks scrumptious. My husband loves pork chops! Thanks for posting such a beautiful recipe. - Cathy

  6. Yum! I had a pork chop with apples and pecans from restaurant take-out. Was one of the most memorable lockdown dishes I had!
