Baked Pork Chops and Apples
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min.
Years ago I made this dish to recipe, now I peel my own apples and make a apple pie filling instead of the can. Other than that I follow directions! A family favorite!
Very good and easy. Other than pork chops, all ingredients on hand. The apples and raisins are a nice compliment.
My kids don't like raisins so I omitted those, but the recipe was still good. It's a nice change of pace from my usual pork chops with cream gravy that I normally cook.
Very good! I made this with three pork chops and three apples.
The best pork chops I ever cooked!
I already had some baked pork chops so I thought it would be dry but was really surprised with the outcome. The juice and flavor from the apples and seasonings under the pork were greatly incorporated to the meat and it wasn't dry at all. I'll make it again soon.
Made this tonight, adding a can of unsweetened apple sauce to the mixture for the topping. OMG...the chops were cut-with-a-fork tender and the apple topping was to die for! Definately a keeper!!!
This was a very good recipe. I baked the pork chops about 35-40 minutes as I didn't want to over bake them. They were tender and baked just right. I was nervous that by not covering them they would get dried out but it wasn't the case at all.The apples and raisons added a nice touch and flavor.You don't really need to do the extra step of preparing the apple/orange juice if you don't want too. They are moist enough without it. I did use chops that were about 1/2-3/4 inches thick.Will make this again for family or company!
I used two fuji apples I had on hand and followed the recipe except I used apple cider instead of the apple juice and a half lemon of juice. I drained the oil from the frying pan, heated it again toward the end of the baking time and used the juices plus only one tablespoon of sugar to deglaze the pan. This mixture was cooked down to a syrup. Use your judgement about how thick. Then I spooned the glaze over the chops at the end and gave them a few minutes of heat. Very good. The house smelled lovely.
I originally found this recipe in a TOH hardbound cookbook when I was reaching for a different way to cook pork chops. It is definetly a different way, but reminds me of fall, so I think I will make it more then than when I did. It is very good and my daughter loved the apples and raisins as they are some of her favs! Thanks again for a great recipe!
