 *Substitute 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350ºF.

  2. STEP 2

    Melt 1 tablespoon butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling. Stir in 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Add pork chops; cook, turning once, over medium heat 4-6 minutes or until browned. Remove pork chops from skillet; keep warm.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine 1/2 cup apple juice, remaining pumpkin pie spice and 1 tablespoon butter in same skillet. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Add stuffing mix and celery; let stand 5 minutes.

  4. STEP 4

    Place pork chops into greased 9-inch square baking pan; top each with apple slice and about 1/3 cup stuffing mixture.

  5. STEP 5

    Cover; bake 20-25 minutes or until pork internal temperature reaches 145ºF and stuffing is heated through.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine remaining apple juice, remaining butter and brown sugar in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; boil 1 minute.

  7. STEP 7

    Place pork chops on serving platter; drizzle with brown sugar mixture.

Tip #1

Apple juice is usually sweetened with sugar in some form whereas, apple cider is pure apple juice without any additional sweetening. Some cider is sold pasteurized which has a longer shelf life. Because cider can be more perishable than apple juice, check the label for storage recommendations.
