Having grown up on a pork-producing farm, I like to include that versatile meat in many recipes. This one, featuring pork chops, has an apple-cinnamon flavor with a hint of sweet maple. It's particularly good when fall apples are in season.

"Should the beans be  undrained when added to the apple mixture?  This was very good. Next time, I'd like to add some garden squash to the bean and apple mixture."

"My fiance is a VERY picky eater. He's worse than my two year old. He loved this dish! The pork chops came out tender with a sweet flavor. It was very good. I also made it with ranch style beans and excluded the raisins. Im making this again tonight for his little sister =] shes sleeping over tonight."
