"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!!!"

"This wasn't bad, but it probably isn't something I'd make again. It sounds and looks like something you'd get at a fancy restaurant, but it doesn't have a whole lot of flavor. Seems like it's missing something, but I couldn't come up with what I could add to improve the taste."

"This went together really quickly, and tasted fantastic. I used the cranberries as dried cherries are hard to come by here in Australia. Served it with mashed potato and steamed veggies for a weekend supper. Two thumbs up!"

"Very quick and tasty! Served it with brown ready rice and fresh steamed broccoli. Thyme is my favorite spice on pork!"
