Tasty Tuesday Sherry Apple Pork Chops!

Now that my apple tree is loaded with fruit, I looked through my recipe file and found this one from our own Diva Donna, which looks like a great recipe for fall. *inhales deeply* I can almost smell it baking....

Imagine  nice  man chops resting on a bed of sliced apples dotted with butter and dusted with brown sugar and cinnamon. Then imagine sherry poured over the top.  Well Baked.  Eat until Satisfied.

Sherry Apple Pork Chops   


  • 6 pork chops
  • 3 large apples - peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry


  1. In a large skillet, brown chops, about 2 minutes each side; reserve.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Arrange apple slices in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Dot with butter or margarine. Top with browned pork chops and season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour sherry over all, cover and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour or until tender and internal temperature of pork has reached 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).


  1. LOL yeah I want that job if the patients look like that.

  2. And that recipe looks appetizing too.

  3. Ooh that recipe sounds amazing. And that hunk...Well he looks pretty yummy too. LOL. I agree with you Mary, oh for that kind of job with those kind of patients...

  4. Ha! Don't I wish! I can honestly say I've never had a patient that looked like that in my life--and I've been a nurse since 1976. And if I did, he would have been quite capable of giving his own bath.

  5. Thanks, everybody, for the Birthday wishes! It was a wonderful day!

    If patients looked like that, there would be so many nurses...! He sorta looks like Brad Pitt...?

  6. Glad you had a great birthday, Suzy! Sorry I didn't get the birthday buns posted for you. Having a calendar to remind me only works if I actually look at it. Thank goodness for Facebook reminders!

    I think having patients like that is the sort of propaganda that gets a lot of girls interested in nursing--that and handsome young doctors. Unfortunately, both of those items are in very short supply. Most of my patients are over 70, and a good many are over 80. And doctors? Don't ask....

  7. Wow. I should try eating pork... in THAT way.
