"Tip, once you have cooked the pork chops put them in the oven at 300 wrapped in foil for around 40 minutes. During this time get you sauce and dressing going. I put more liquid in the sauce and then went to a is so good!!"

"My husband and I weren't impressed. The apple sauce was good, but the pork was bland. Taste of Home has an "Apple-Glazed Pork Chop" recipe that's way better!"

"I am advanced cook and baker. When I read these ingredients I knew immediately after browning the chops, they needed to go into aluminum foil and bake for about 30-40 minutes and I did just that. I triple the sauce since I did make 7 boneless pork chops. After baking I added them to the sacue for about 10 more minutes...Absolulety delicious, tender and it was yummy!! Thank you Doris I will be making this again!!!"
