Onion-Apple Pork Chops

You couldn’t ask for a better entree to serve on a fall evening. The apple, pork and maple flavors complement each other perfectly. Rice and steamed broccoli make nice accompaniments, too. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

    Made this to use up some of the bumper crop of apples we have. Did not disappoint! Tender and juicy.

    The entire family lived these. Tender and juicy! The apples gave it a nice flavor. I didn't know how it would taste with the onions, but it worked out great.

    It was good but it did lack flavor. Not sure how I would flavor it up - but I would love to make it again. Pork chops were very tender!

    It was good but lacked a little flavor, yes I would fix it again with a few alterations.
