Heat same skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and butter, and cook 7 to 8 minutes or until apples are lightly browned. Add brown sugar, sage and reserved pork drippings; heat to boiling over high heat.

4. In cup, combine water and cornstarch; whisk into apple mixture and heat to boiling over high heat. Boil 1 minute; remove skillet from heat. To serve, slice pork and spoon apples and sauce over pork; sprinkle with pecans.
