For Linda Shupe of Berthoud, Colorado, “This recipe is a nice change from the usual barbecue sauce and makes tender, moist pork chops. It lets me get supper on the table fast—especially when I assemble it the night before!”
When I was growing up, we couldn't afford to have meat very often, so it was a special evening when we had these tender chops. The apples, raisins and apple cider give this dish a sweet touch and a pretty appearance. —Shirley Joan Helfenbein, Lapeer, Michigan
Moist, juicy and just right for warm summer evenings, these strawberry-topped pork chops from our Test Kitchen are everyday-easy but special enough to serve guests. The blend of rosemary and berry vinaigrette adds a fruity freshness.

These tender, glazed chops sent in by Lisa Gilliland of Fort Collins, Colorado, get great flavor from a little brown sugar, chili powder and dried basil. The fast-cooking entree is sure to make a regular appearance at your dinner table.
from Dayton, Ohio, Linda Clarks sends this dish with subtle orange flavor and right-from-the-skillet crispness. It's sure to please. She writes, “This dish came from an old orange chicken recipe my mother used to make. My family requests it often!”
Recipes of Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, like this one, are popular in our area. We like to serve these sweet-and-sour pork chops with dumplings or spaetzle, red cabbage coleslaw and applesauce, with Dutch apple pie for dessert. —Joyce E. Brotzman, McVeytown, Pennsylvania
This has become my favorite way to cook pork loin. The grilled vegetable and meat chunks, seasoned with a homemade Southwestern-style spice blend, are appropriately served in a flour tortilla. Just top with salsa and enjoy! —Bea Westphal, Slidell, Louisiana
