A delectable fruit sauce makes this easy pork chop dish Sunday-special. It's an autumn favorite when the children and grandchildren gather at our place for dinner after church. The chops simmer to a wonderful tenderness in just an hour. -Bertha Johnson, Indianapolis, Indiana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 3, 2010

I have made this recipe for years,the whole family likes it. I usually use boneless pork chops instead of the bone-in kind. It is easy enough for a week night meal yet special enough for company. Don't let the curry scare you off, it is subtle and delicious.
