    Loved this recipe. It was easy, didn't require a lot of ingredients and was satisfying. This will be placed in my favorites. I didn't have pork chops with bone so I used a center cut boneless chop cut in half.

    I've never been a fan of combining fruit with meats (it just never sounded/tasted right to me), so I was a little wary when my husband wanted to make this recipe. However, it's now been saved to my favorites and we will revisit it at least once a month I believe. AMAZING! The gravy mixture brings it all together and makes it irresistible.

    This was great. The sauce was delicious. I was surprised how good this was. I used center cut port chops.

    Made this last night, and it is excellent! Couldn't find Haricots Verts at the local small town grocery, so I used frozen green beans and tossed into the mustard vinaigrette. Used dry thyme and I sliced pork tender loin I had into chops. My wife and I will have this again, and it was pretty easy to make!

    Excellent recipe! Wonderful blending of tastes with the onions and apples. I will definitely make this again.

    I am a tough critic and loved this recipe. Only adaptation is I doubled the gravy. The haricots verts with mustard vinaigrette were also excellent.

    Made this for dinner last night and it was delicious!!!! I agree with tookey75, the gravy brings it all together. Would not hesitate to serve to company, it's that good!!

    The onions were great, but the apples were only so so. The gravy didn't impress me either (maybe I didn't make it right), which is why I rated it a 3 instead of 4. However, the pork, onions & haricots vert were very good, so next time I'll just make those without the gravy or apples.

    Onions, apples & thyme were the best of the plate -- which looked a lot like the cover photo. Subbed sirloin-cut chops for center-cut, because they were on sale. Added the accumulated meat juices from the resting chops to the broth/sauce. OK weeknight supper.

    My fiance and I really enjoyed this recipe. I wasn't sure if I would like the apples and onions but they worked together really well.

    Delicious meal - and relatively easy, too! Paula made this after getting up from her afternoon nap before she headed off to work. It did not take very long and was worth it in every way!

    I loved this dish and more to the point, my husband loved it. The flavor from the seasonings and then the touch of cider vinegar makes it oh, so very delicious. I would definitely recommend.

    There was nothing wrong with this, but nothing special about it either...my husband and I just didn't love it. I have two friends who made this and said they did love it, though.

    This was delicious and easy to make. Followed the recipe except I added a little brown suger to the apples and onions and sprinkled a little more over the assembled pork chops, sauce, and apples. I also used whipped butter, which I love and think it adds a nice depth to the flavor of any dish. Next time I would like to try with peaches instead of apples.

    This was really outstanding! Superb sweet/sour flavor combination. I used fresh pearl onions & boneless pork cutlets.

    I made this tonight, and while it wasn't bad, I just didn't think it was great. I've had better pork chops and apple recipes before. I felt it didn't have enough of something in it - it just missed. I'll look for a better recipe in the future.

    A delicious fall recipe with easy to use ingredients. I used a boneless chop just because that is my preference. It was easy to cook and very tasty.

    This was good, and it did not take long at all! I didn't have fresh thyme, so I used dried, If/When I make this again I will for sure get fresh!

    I am not that much of a pork fan, mostly because whenever I've cooked it, it turned out dry and chewy. After seeing this on the August cover, I decided to try and conquer my fear of cooking pork. It was worth it! The best part of the recipe were the roasted apples, which provided a bright balance to the meat. I swapped Gala for Granny Smith, though, I like a tart apple. The sauce was simple to make and was delicious. Although, this was just an ordinary Tuesday dinner, this recipe would be great for special occasions!

    excellent, easy recipe. The whole family loved it. I agree with the person who used dried thyme - I did as well and I won't do that again. The recipe needs fresh thyme.

    Really really good. The only problem was with the order and timing of the recipe. After reading it several times and having my husband weigh in with his opinion, I switched up the cooking order. Why use 2 pans? Cooked the pork 1st and kept warm. Made the onion and apple mix in the same pan and then proceeded from there. Less clean up and a smoother cooking process.

    We loved this recipe! I'm not usually fond of fruit mixed with meat, but this was just right. Very tasty!

    Great. My husband loved it and he is very picky. Thanks. This will be in the regular rotation.

    The apples and onions were excellent. Thyme and Apples; Magical! My boyfriend even asked me to make them again sometime. However, he asked why I put chicken gravy on the pork chops. I think it might have been better with vegetable broth. (Why don't they make pork broth?) Also, I had to sub regular pearl onions and peel them myself. 5 major chain stores and none of them carry frozen pearl onions. Still a quick recipe.

    Its a good recipe, i've made it twice before finding what worked best for us. My grandmother was actually the one who showed me the recipe, and wanted to follow it to the t the first time. The second go around, she was much happier with it. I substituted a small red onion, wedged, for the pearl onions, added some chopped garlic, and added 1/2 cup of craisins. Also, I dipped the porkchops in flour before browning them, and substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth

  • Barbawana Posted: 10/25/13

    Very good! I changed the sauce quite a bit though. After browning the chops, Sautéed garlic in hot pan, then added 1c apple cider, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper, and 1 T flour and cooked about 5 min till reduced and thickened. Off heat added butter and vinegar. I too couldn't find pearl onions so I just used large chop sweet onion with the apples which worked great! Served with roasted fingerlings. My husband and I enjoyed this very much!
