Butterflied Pork Chop Dinner Recipe

The sliced apple and sweet potatoes that complement these tender pork chops remind me of a crisp fall day, but I enjoy this hearty main dish any time of year, served with salad and dinner rolls. -Angela Leinenbach Mechanicsville, Virginia

"I made this the other night. I used the apple cider instead of the apple juice & it was so strong & potent. No one could eat it. I made the sauce with apple juice though & it was so delicous & sweet. I might try this recipe again but just use the juice instead."
