"My husband was put on a restricted sodium diet and this is the first recipe I've found that the whole family eats without adding salt. Delicious. We live in the desert and don't like to heat the house up with the oven so I make it in a dutch oven on top of the stove. After browning, simmer for about 45 minutes and it's perfect."

"Delicious recipe! The entire family (which consists of picky eaters) loved it! We didnt sear our pork chops in butter, instead just sprayed the pan."

"Made this last night as it sounded good. It was terrible and mushy. We did not care for it at all. Will not keep this recipe."

"This was very good. I used Granny Smith Apples. I think if I had used any other ones they might have been mush."
