"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! :)"
