This hearty flavorful dish is great on cold winter nights. I love the sweetness of the apples, the heat of the curry and the bit of almond crunch.—Mary Leverette, Columbia, South Carolina

  • 4 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 medium apples, thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
  • 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes, undrained
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 cups hot cooked brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds, optional


  1. In a 6-qt. stockpot, heat 2 teaspoons butter over medium-high heat. Brown pork chops in batches. Remove from pan.
  2. In same pan, heat remaining butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until tender. Stir in apples, tomatoes, sugar, curry powder, salt and chili powder. Bring to a boil, stirring to break up tomatoes.
  3. Return chops to pan. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Turn chops; cook 3-5 minutes longer or until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve with rice and, if desired, sprinkle with almonds.
