Oh so good! I omitted the apple cider/apple juice and just use extra chicken broth instead. Just my preference. It is one of my families favorite new recipes! My husband liked it so much he has made it several times as well.:) Served with Royal Blend Texmati rice or a hearty brown rice and fresh veggies. The apple/onion/mustard gravy is the best!!!

I agree with the other comment - these were the best pork chops that I've ever made also!! I used a honeycrisp apple and added mushrooms. It was delicious. Served it with mashed potatoes and broiled asparagus. The sauce was great!! I was worried that the apple would be too sweet but it was just right!! Also I did not have apple cider or apple cider vinegar so I used white vinegar. I will definitely be making this again and again and again!! Read More

Very Good!! Very tasty recipe! It was extremely easy and quick to cook. I added the chops back into the pan right after adding in the liquid. This worked really well to get the pork cooked all the way through. Made brown rice and steamed broccoli to go along with it! Pros: Easy Tasty Filling Healthy Read More

Very Tasty ut Cooking Times Need Adjusting My family and I really enjoyed this recipe and I will definitely be making it again. However when following the recipe's cooking times for the pork it was pink inside when we sat down to eat and we had to put the chops in the microwave to cook them longer. When I make this recipe again I will lower the temperature for browning so the meat is more thoroughly cooked at the outset. I will also wait to thicken the sauce until I add the pork and allow everything to simmer for 5-10 minutes to ensure the meat is thoroughly cooked before adding the cornstarch mixture. Otherwise it's a wonderful recipe! Pros: Easy to fix Cons: Needs longer cooking time for meat Read More
