"They did turn out very moist, but will not make again. Didn't think that they were very tasty."

"I was not impressed. It maybe that I am not a fan of boneless pork chops, but it is difficult to find bone-in. I liked the apple/onion mix but it won't go into the recipe box."

"Blah! I don't know what i did wrong, but the apples tasted just like vinegar. It took way longer to cook the chops, and I had to move them to the oven. The pork had good flavor, but we dumped the rest."

"I loved how quick and easy these were to put together. I am not a big pork chop fan so I'm always trying to find new ways to cooke them. This one is definitely a keeper!"

"A perfect recipe for fall. I used bone-in pork chops, and they came out nice and juicy. The vinegar and apple sauce combination was perfectly balanced with the apples and onions."

"The flavor of the apples and onions was good. Every time I make boneless pork loin chops they turn out dry. I was very careful not to overcook this time around but they were still on the dry and tough side. I think if you made this same recipe with a turkey tenderloin or turkey cutlets it might be better."

"This might not be a fair review because I could not use the onions since my husband is allergic to them but this was way too vinegary. The kids did not like the "sour" apples at all. My husband said it was not bad but not fantastic. I won't make it again but I would suggest using less vinegar."

"This was a really good fall dish, comforting, easy and different. I think the only thing I will change next time is to substitute apple juice for the apple cider vinegar because I think that was too strong of flavor."
