  • The applesauce can be very chunky or lightly whisked for a smoother finish.
  • Pre-heat the grill.
  • Brush the pork chops with a little of the melted butter, seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Put the chops on a grill tray with a rack, and grill them for 4-5 minutes on both sides.
  • Meanwhile peel and core the remaining apples.
  • Cut into thin long slices, maintaining the shape of the apple.
  • Spread the applesauce over the chops and arrange the apple slices on top, slightly overlapping as you would for apple tart.
  • Brush or drizzle the chops with the remaining melted butter, sprinkling with the remaining sugar and return under the grill.
  • Cook for a few minutes and the apples are nicely toasted.
  • Serve and enjoy.
