Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops

    4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
    2 tablespoons butter, divided
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    4 medium tart apples, thinly sliced
    2 tablespoons chopped pecans

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook pork chops in 1 tablespoon butter for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
    
Remove chops and keep warm. Add the apples, pecans, brown sugar mixture and remaining butter to the pan; cook and stir until apples are tender. Serve with chops.
