- Cook on low 7-9 hours.
After reading reviews of a few of this type of recipe, I decided to embellish this one a little. I did use bone in pork chops. I used 4 golden delicious apples , peeled and sliced. Made a mixture of 1/2 cup Brown sugar and 1 tsp of dry mustard. (no nutmeg) The rest is the same with the exception of after placing the first layer of apples, I sprinkled some of the brown sugar mixture, then the pork chops. and continued the layers the same just adding the brown sugar mixture over each layer of the apples. It came out spectacular! my family went bonkers for them!
This was a nice recipe that kept the pork chops nice & moist & tender. There isn't a whole lot of apple flavour - I'm wondering if a little bit of brown sugar would have brought that out a little more.
Easy recipe. I have Rival Crock Pot and 7-9 hours was way too much time on low. I would say 5-6 hours would be better. My chops actually dried out and started burning on the edges that were in contact with the crock...we just ate what wasn't overcooked. That said, good flavor, easy to make and, with a little bit of salt, very good. I think with a time adjustment, this is a keeper recipe.
