MY REVIEW

Delicious! I used apple cider instead of chicken broth and apple juice. I added a tablespoon of brown sugar to apple onion mixture and a tablespoon of brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of rosemary to sauce.

Sounds good, but I've been searching for unsweetened apple juice for 6 months now. Any suggestions?

We grilled the pork chops vs. cooking on the range, then let them simmer in the apple sauce. Both my husband and I still think it was a good recipe with lots of flavor.

I made this for my family, and it was good. It is perfect for the fall. The apples were flavorful and delicious, but the gravy was not as tasty as I hoped. Next time I will add more spices, but there will be a next time! :)
