My mother was a very traditional cook, except when it came to this recipe! My sisters and I enjoyed it when we were growing up. Now it's a favorite of our own kids'.


  • 4 pork chops (1/2 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup water
  • 1-1/2 cups diced unpeeled tart apples
  • 1/2 cup raisins, optional
  • 3 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Hot cooked rice or macaroni


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown pork chops in 1 tablespoon of butter; drain and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, saute onion in remaining butter until tender. Add water, apples, raisins if desired, marmalade, lemon juice, curry, sugar and pepper; mix well. Bring to a boil.
  3. Return pork chops to skillet. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until pork juices run clear and apples are crisp-tender. Remove pork chops; keep warm.
  4. Combine flour and cold water until smooth; add to skillet, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Serve over rice or macaroni.
