Braised Autumn Pork Chops Recipe

Publisher Photo
"My husband made these delicious chops for me when I was expecting our first child. He found the recipe in a cookbook full of healthy recipes," writes Sarah Susanka, Ventura, California. "The braising liquid keeps the pork tender and juicy. And the blend of apple cider, sage and vinegar gives it a subtle sweet-and-sour taste."
