Reviews for Smothered Cider Pork Chops
"This was yummy. I cooked it longer in the skillet to make sure it was done all the way, but still had great flavor and texture. Easy to cook and clean up."
"I did these in my small slow cooker. I used the thick boneless loin chops and you did not even have to cut them with a knife. They were soooo good."
