In theory the recipe should be quite good, but as is I found it to be bland. I ended up kicking up the flavour with more s & p, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. If I were to make it again, I'd also either braise the chops quite a bit longer or use a pork tenderloin or pork loin.

Sorry...would not make again. The pork chops were tender and I liked the onions, celery, garlic mixture but the cider vinegar was def. too sour/tart for out taste...and yes it was fresh...just too sour tasting. Edible, but I would not make again. REVISED!! OMG...my apologies, I used apple cider vinegar instead of apple cider or juice...Boy what a space head I am! No wonder it was so sour. I will try again...

These chops come out so so tender off the skillet. I also didn't use apple juice because we nad none on hand, but I used Apple Strawberry Kiwi instead! These were still delisious and I will absolutely be making these in the future!

Wow! These were so good. We didn't have celery, so we made it without. We also only had apple juice, so I added a couple dashes of cinnamon. I also kept the meat covered while I cooked it so it was super juicy. I know I'll be making this again.

Ok so I admit I didn't make it exactly as the recipe states. I forgot to get apple cider/juice from the grocery store so I substituted chicken stock. It turned out fabulous. I thickened up the sauce with a little cornstarch and it was a hit with my family. It was simple and came together quickly. I am adding this to my list of go-to dishes.

I make this recipe with boneless pork loins and it's delicious. It's one of my go-to recipes when I want something other than chicken.
