Bean and Pork Chop Bake

Having grown up on a pork-producing farm, I like to include that versatile meat in many recipes. This one, featuring pork chops, has an apple-cinnamon flavor with a hint of sweet maple. It's particularly good when fall apples are in season.

    This recipe had really great flavor, and my family liked it a lot. I was disappointed that the bean and apple mixture was very watery. I’m not sure where all the water came from. I drained the beans, and followed the recipe exactly. If I make it again, I’ll sauté the apple and onion to cut down on the water

    This is a great-tasting recipe! The apples and pork go so well together, and then with the cinnamon and raisins - YUM!

    Should the beans be  undrained when added to the apple mixture?  This was very good. Next time, I'd like to add some garden squash to the bean and apple mixture.

    We are now gluten free, and my go-to for an easy dinner used to be Shake and Bake. This recipe will certainly replace that! So easy, few dishes, tastes delicious.... this will be a weekly meal at our house!

    My fiance is a VERY picky eater. He's worse than my two year old. He loved this dish! The pork chops came out tender with a sweet flavor. It was very good. I also made it with ranch style beans and excluded the raisins. Im making this again tonight for his little sister =] shes sleeping over tonight.
