Serves 6

Peel and core the apples and cut them into fourths. Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the apples and cook, turning occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the skillet and reserve the cooking juices.

Add the chops to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes on each side, then remove from the skillet and keep warm.

Add the brandy to the skillet, heat for a few seconds, and ignite. When the flames have died down, stir in the red wine, scraping up any sediment from the base with a wooden spoon. Add the crème de cassis and cook until reduced.

Beat the reserved cooking juices into the sauce, add the fruit, and cook for 1 minute. Divide the chops and apples among individual serving plates and spoon the sauce over them.
