Awful at best. potatoes were hard, pork was over cooked and tough. All these things a'rent meant to be cooked together. I kinda thought it was too easy, and it was.

We are going to have to try this again. My husband was helping me get it into the oven because I had to leave for a meeting. A couple of things were overlooked. The seasoning on the pork chops and the apples being peeled. The asparagus was cooked perfectly. The potatoes were good, a little too soft for our liking so a little bigger chunks next time (they were 1/2" this time). Also worth noting that I used red potatoes since new potatoes are hard to find here. When I came home and saw the chops so pale, I asked him about it because it looked nothing like the picture. He said he it didn't say to do anything. I guess he stopped reading the recipe. It's all good. I like one sheet dinners and hope that after we try again it will be an alternate to the chicken one we enjoy.

The apples added a delicious sauce for the pork. I did not peel apples but just cut into one-inch pieces. My husband said this was a keeper recipe.

This was awesome I will definitely make it again. I only made 2 changes. I took the suggestion from a previous review and cooked the potatoes for 15 minutes then removed the pan and added the other ingredients and baked for the 20-25 minutes. I also added a little garlic powder to the asparagus.

I loved the convenience of this. Awesome flavor too. I have to say that I prefer the potatoes crispy so next time I would probably start them first and add the rest of the ingredients 15 minutes later.

Delicious, I had some sweet Italian sausage handy so I split the chops and put some in the pocket. I am not familiar with the SWseasoning so l just used pickling salt and pepper. The Apple was so good. I will make this again. Janet VFE
