  • 1 teaspoon minced green onion
  • 8 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large tart apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • CHOPS:
  • 8 bone-in pork loin chops (1/2-inch thick and 4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans, toasted


  1. In a large saucepan, saute green onion in 1 tablespoon butter. Add apple juice; cook until reduced by half. Add the cream, syrup, salt and pepper; cook until reduced by half and mixture is caramel-like. Add remaining butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring until melted.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the apples, onion, butter and brown sugar over medium heat for 3 minutes or until onion is crisp-tender and apples are softened; set aside.
  3. Sprinkle chops with pepper. Brush each side with oil. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving.
  4. Rewarm maple butter and glazed apples. Divide apples among four plates; top each with two chops and a fourth of the maple butter. Sprinkle with pecans.
