1 rib (1/2 cup) celery, thinly sliced
4 (1/4-inch) red apple slices, cored

Cover; bake 20-25 minutes or until pork chops are tender and stuffing is heated through.

Combine remaining apple juice, remaining butter and brown sugar in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; boil 1 minute.

Place pork chops on serving platter; drizzle with brown sugar mixture.


*Substitute 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves.

Recipe Tip

What is the difference between apple juice and apple cider?

Apple juice is usually sweetened with sugar in some form whereas, apple cider is pure apple juice without any additional sweetening. Some cider is sold pasteurized which has a longer shelf life. Because cider can be more perishable than apple juice, check the label for storage recommendations.
