Cinnamon Apple Pork

We made this tonight. The actual recipe called for unsweetened applesauce, but I actually just used real apples and made my own. Boy was it yummy!

2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
2 tbsp brown sugar, packed (for diabetics, use splenda brown sugar)
1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground
2 tbsp honey
2 - 6 ounces pork sirloin chops, raw, boneless

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine apples with brown sugar, cinnamon and honey in a sauce pan and over medium heat, cook until the apple mixture starts boiling. Pour mixture into a food processor and puree until applesauce consistency. Flash grill the pork chops. Place in a roasting pan or casserole dish. Spoon apple mixture over the pork; Cover and bake for 45 minutes or until pork is browned and cooked through. A meat thermometer in the center should register at least 150°F to 160°F.
