When I found this recipe online years ago, it quickly became a favorite. The ingredients are easy to keep on hand, and the one-pan cleanup is a bonus. —Christina Price, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"My husband's favorite pork chop recipe. easy to cook and have ingredients in my pantry. Great taste with pork, apples, sauce and pecans. I add pork back while apples get soft to keep them warm. Delicious!"

"I prepared this recipe last night. easy and delicious. I cooked Gala apples as it was what I had available. Will try more tart apples next time. Also added glazed pecans instead of the plain pecans."

"The only thing I changed was to saute onions, garlic, celery, raisins chopped apples in a Dutch oven pan first in butter and a little olive oil (so butter doesn't brown). Then remove from pan and brown the pork chops in the drippings. Return chopped onions, celery, garlic, raisins and apples to pan. Add brown sugar, nutmeg and 1/3- 1/2 can frozen apple juice concentrate to the pan at this time and mix in. Then stir in 1-2 T. corn starch to thicken a little. Spread some of the sauce on the bottom of the casserole. Add browned pork chops. Spread remaining sauce on chops. Sprinkle with parsley. bake at 350 degrees covered for 35 - 40 min ; uncover last 10 - 15 min. bake until no longer pink inside. The flavors are amazing.! dvdv Pinehills in Plymouth MA"
