Reviews for Bean and Pork Chop Bake
"This is a great-tasting recipe! The apples and pork go so well together, and then with the cinnamon and raisins - YUM!"
"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."
"It doesn't get any easier. The house smelled wonderful! True comfort food..."
