Pennsylvania Dutch Pork Chops

Recipes of Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, like this one, are popular in our area. We like to serve these sweet-and-sour pork chops with dumplings or spaetzle, red cabbage coleslaw and applesauce, with Dutch apple pie for dessert. —Joyce E. Brotzman, McVeytown, Pennsylvania
