This recipe, as amended to use less maple syrup, is TERRIFIC! My only change to the recipe was using an overflowing 1/4 cup of maple syrup instead of the 1/2 cup in the recipe (after reading other people's comments), and it was perfect. Truly delicious. My entire family loved it!

Made this tonight and it was excellent. Nice, tender and juicy pork chops. The apples and onion went very well together(I had frozen some apple slices from the summer, so this was the perfect time to use them!). Based on the previous reviews here I used 1/4 cup of maple syrup instead of 1/2 and it was fine. I do think it may have been too sweet with the 1/2 cup since the 1/4 cup seemed to be enough without overpowering the flavor of the onion and garlic. I also used unsalted butter(have a family member on salt-restriction)to cut down some of the sodium. I definitely plan to make this again and I may also add a bit more garlic(personal preference since I love it). A very delicious dish and easy to make!
