Reviews for Baked Pork Chops and Apples
"My kids don't like raisins so I omitted those, but the recipe was still good. It's a nice change of pace from my usual pork chops with cream gravy that I normally cook."
"Very good! I made this with three pork chops and three apples."
"The best pork chops I ever cooked!"
"I already had some baked pork chops so I thought it would be dry but was really surprised with the outcome. The juice and flavor from the apples and seasonings under the pork were greatly incorporated to the meat and it wasn't dry at all. I'll make it again soon."
"Made this tonight, adding a can of unsweetened apple sauce to the mixture for the topping. OMG...the chops were cut-with-a-fork tender and the apple topping was to die for! Definately a keeper!!!"
