    this was a great weeknight meal. i used granny smith apples and cut them up into pretty small pieces so the apple sauce was ready in 25 mins. the pork really wasn't anything special but was good with the apple sauce. a nice change putting time into the side dish instead of the meat dish.

    Pulled this from the "Feed 4 for -$10," and it came in under budget 'cause chops were on special. Had to add a bit more water to the apples during last 25 minutes. Put some Prudhomme pork&veal seasoning in the flour for a little kick, so didn't salt the pork. Served with steamed green & yellow beans and CL's thyme corn bread. Pretty good.

    Yummy! My daughter and I thought this meal was quite delicious! I also added cinnamon to the applesauce, but was a little heavy-handed. Will add less next time. We used 1 Braeburn and 2 Granny Smith. Also found porkchops on sale, and bought a pack, so there are 4 in the freezer now. The green beans were good, but I think I would cook them a few minutes longer than 5. My porkchops needed about 15 minutes of cooking time. They were sure tender and juicy! When hubby gets home from work, I'm sure he will like it, too!

    Fantastic and easy weeknight dinner with something green on the side (collards), when we're feeling indulgent, I make a country gravy to put on the chops and greens, super yum

    We loved this recipe, and I especially loved the applesauce. I will never buy applesauce again! The pork chops, I thought, were great against the sweet applesauce and the steamed green beans I served. I used lean pork tenderloins instead just because I hate bones in my food. I liked it, and after the applesauce is going, there isn't much left to do as far as prepping.

    The home made apple sauce was the only thing that saved this recipe from receiving one star from me. It was really quite good and I will definitely make it again. I will not, however, make the pork chops ever again. They were bland and just didn't shine paired with the applesauce. I will not ever make the pork chops again.

    AWESOME!! We used granny smith apples, and didn't need to add anything to it.

    The pork recipe is quite basic, so of course it turned out as one would expect. I also whipped up the applesauce and WOW it was easy! They say to cook the apples for 25 minutes and then again for another 25 minutes covered - but my apples cooked up quite faster. Like the other reviewer, I also added a pinch of cinnamon. Yum!

    Wow, this was simple and delicious. I started the applesauce first and then prepared the pork chops while the applesauce was cooking. I followed the applesauce recipe exactly except for reducing the amount of sugar by half because I had sweet apples. I used boneless pork chops and prepared them exactly as instructed by the recipe. My husband hugged me, and said it was outstanding!!! We started a diet today and were so thrilled with this delicious and easy to prepare beginning. I'll definitely make it again.

    I didn't pan fry my pork chops. I put it under the broiler for 8 min per side and they came out perfectly. I would recommend NOT adding more sugar (if you happen to think that 3 TBS couldn't possibly be enough)....it is enough! My applesause was a bit on the sweet side.

    THIS applesauce was UNBELIEVABLE! I used sweet apples and so, as another user, I cut the sugar in half. What was left I let caramelize a bit and it was out of this world. The pork chops were also very tasty - I added a bit of hot pepper flakes to kick it up a bit. Will definitely be in the rotation from now on.

    This was super easy to make and tasted wonderful. I used olive oil instead and used both Jonathon and Granny Smith apples. Yummy.

    We loved this! The applesauce is a great complement to the pork. We do add some cinnamon to the applesauce, but it is fabulous either way.
