"Was this recipe a joke? I mean, I had doubts making it and I double checked that I was following the directions because it seemed like it wasn't going to be very good. Turned out to be both bland and GROSS. The bacony appleness did not work. It had almost no flavor except for boiled pork. NOT GOOD. I wound up re-separating the ingredients, making a sweet/spicy cinnamon apple concoction with the apples and reducing the bacon/onion water to a thin sauce to serve over the chops (which came out rubbery, by the way). Don't do this one."
