This hearty dish was always a family favorite when I was growing up. Mom called the tender chops "fried monkey ears!" Now it's a favorite meal with my own family. —Kathy Barry, Lake Forest, California

"Good, easy dinner. Contains a LOT o f sugar, which I think can be replaced by using a sweeter apple. Otherwise, pretty good. Served with rice or sweet potatoes and a salad, even my five year old cleaned his plate!"
