Like the previous review the apples fell aprt but still tasted good. The brown sugar sauce ended up on the bottom. I thought it would form a type of glaze over the meat but it didn't. I followed the directions except I used apple juice in place of cider. Having said that, the chops were okay. Just not worth all the effort and time it took to cook.

Very good dish with very little work which we served with (frozen) mixed vegetables. I think I cut my apples too thin because they disintegrated in the casserole and became more like applesauce but we still enjoyed this dish. We also only used 4 pork chops, 2 apples and 2 sweet potatoes but the amount specified for the apple cider and sugar. Next time if I only use 4 pork chops I will cut the apple cider down a bit more (maybe to 1/3 cup). Thanks for sharing!
