This recipe was EXCELLENT!!! The only thing I added was 3 tsp of brown sugar to the onion and apple mixture and that was only because I was using regular butter. My husband never liked pork chops but he drooled over these!!! YUM!!

Delicious! I had sworn I would never make pork chops again because they are always dry. This recipe made the best pork chops imaginable!

Hi Dianne, We developed this recipe specifically for Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread so it will give you the best results. You can substitute for the Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread by melting ¼ cup butter and adding ¼ to ½ teaspoon cinnamon and a little sugar to taste. Make recipe as directed. Hope this helps!

Made this last night and hubby couldn't get enough, I didn't find it to sweet as other reviewers stated but I did season my pork chops well with salt and used 100% maple syrup not imitation. definitely will make this again!!!

This was even better than expected. My family loved this! Even my 5 year old daughter, who ate dinner at a friend's house, came home & ate some of it & said "i am eating this for dinner tomorrow night"! She did, too. Moist, nice combo of flavors, and just yummy!

Never had pork chops and apples before. I didn't have the onion so didn't use that and didn't use garlic. I had one granny smith and another apple that I used. I added some all spice to it. So I kinda stuck to the recipe. It turned out really good. Would never have put pork chops and apples together. Will have to try with the onions next time. The family loved it so this one goes in my recipe file to make again.

When you put the pork chops back into the pan, place them on top of the apples and onions.

Sorry, but I don't cook much. Do the pork chops go on top, beside, or under the onions and apples while they cook? Or does it make any difference in the outcome of the onions and apples? Thanks for any help. They look delicious.

Very good and easy to do. I used butterfly pork chops and meat was very tender. I have passed recipe on and will definitely make it again.

different and great idea

The carmelized onion and apple make for a great favor combination

My husband and I made these pork chops last night as I wanted to try something different. I prepped the onion and apple while he started cooking the pork chops. Generally, pork chops come out chewy and dry, but these are some of the best pork chops we've ever had. We'll definitely make this recipe again!
