Apple Butter Pork Chops
4 pork chops (thick or medium cut)
salt and pepper
3/4 cup apple butter
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon orange (or pineapple) juice
Rub both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper (or seasoning salt) and place in a casserole dish. In a small bowl combine apple butter, juice and minced garlic. Pour over top of pork chops. Cover with aluminum foil and cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking for another 15-25 minutes (depending on thickness of chops).
