These moist tender chops get delicious flavor from Dijon mustard, onions and apple slices. Or try replacing the apples with pineapple rings for an appealing variation. I like to serve mashed sweet potatoes with this main course, along with a simple salad.

"Wow - so good - I'm not usually a pork chop fan but the flavoring of this dish had us going back for seconds. I appreciated that it was simple to make and most ingredients already on-hand. The only change I made was to use all Fuji red apple since I didn't have green apple on-hand."

"I didn't have Dijon Mustard on hand, so I used 1 Tbsp yellow, and 1 Tbsp spicy. I used boneless pork chops and only one onion. I cooked the apples and onion separately, to speed up cooking time. I also added 1 Tbsp brown sugar to the apple/onion mixture along with some butter to add a little sweet caramelization at the end. Everything turned out wonderfully delicious, and I didn?t have any leftover pork chops because my husband ate the extra one!"

"The ultimate test: my kids loved it, except for the mustard hater. He suggested I make it again and leave the mustard off of his. :)"
