Pecan Crusted Pork Chops

Pecan Crusted Pork Chops are coated in brown sugar, allspice, and pecans which complement the pork really well. I love the combination of flavors in this recipe.

Try dipping them in spicy brown mustard, Dijon mustard, or drizzle them with honey.

This recipe is quick and easy to make and is perfect for lunch, dinner, or an impressive date night meal for two.

Hi Zona, My electric skillet is the size of a VW. Can you please help me convert the recipe to a stove top, skillet? Thank you. I love your recipes. Thank you for doing what you do! Sincerely, R M Fernley

Hi R M Fernley, for a gas stove top try starting around the number 4 on the burner dial. Heat a high-sided pot with oil for five minutes to ensure the burner has reached its highest temperature. Insert a frying thermometer into the oil to get an accurate reading of the temperature and adjust the burner accordingly to reach 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Thank you and good luck :)
