One Dish Pork Chop Dinner

When I had to make a dinner with Mennonite theme, I came up with this meaty main dish. Most often, I serve it with salad, soup and bread. The apple juice gives the pork a wonderful flavor, and the cabbage taste isn't too strong. My husband and I have two grown children. We raise corn and soybeans and feed out cattle here, plus we also grow specialty-cut fresh flowers.
