    Pork, pecans, apple and pumpkin are a natural flavour combination. If you like you can reduce the sweetness of the sauce by replacing some of the apple juice with water.

    Serves: 4 

    • 440g pumpkin puree
    • 3/4 cup (185ml) apple juice
    • 3/4 cup (160g) white sugar
    • 1 pinch ground cloves
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 cup pecans
    • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
    • 4 (1 cm thick) boneless pork chops
    • 1/4 cup oil for frying

    1. Whisk together pumpkin puree, apple juice, sugar, cloves, ginger and cinnamon in a saucepan until smooth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the mixture has reached the consistency of apple sauce, about 10 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, pulse pecans and bread crumbs in a food processor until the pecans are finely chopped. Pour into a shallow dish and press pork chops into the mixture to coat.
    3. Heat oil in a frypan over medium-high heat. Add breaded pork chops and cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve the pork chops with a dollop of pumpkin sauce.
