My husband says this recipe is an excuse to eat dessert for dinner. Yes, it is sweet, but also very tasty. I'm a sucker for any recipe with apples.

This was pretty good. Sweet but definitely not too sweet. I made it as listed except I added a little bit of chopped onion when cooking apples. Sounds funny but it tasted good and balanced out the sweet a little.

We reallllllly liked this. I had 6 smallish pork loin chops that I used. Left the apple quantity the same, and doubled the butter, brown sugar, etc. Found these to be mildly sweet, and not sickenly sweet - that's just our taste.

I followed recipe as is and everything came out the way it was supposed to. My DH and I wanted something different, and we thought the porkchops were ok, but we have come to a conclusion that anything sweet doesn't have a place in our dinner menu. We do appreciate you posting the recipe, it is a very good recipe for those with a sweet tooth.
