Smothered Pork Chops shared by Simone Greene of Winchester, Virginia can be prepared in a flash using convenient stuffing mix. But they boast a delicious from-scratch flavor and will fill your house with the mouthwatering aroma of simmering apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. “It’s a dish my Mom used to make when I was still living at home,” Simone recalls. “The sweetness of the apple mixture makes such a nice complement to the savory stuffing and chops.”—Simone Greene, Winchester, Virginia
