Super! Made this tonight and I really enjoyed it. The taste is light yet flavorful. Thank you to J-beeba for the suggestion of vanilla to add to the apples. I added a few drops and it was great. The family ate it up as well. Served with steamed green beans and ears of corn. This will be perfect in the summer when it gets hot. Glad you posted it on the site ratherbeswimmin'! Enjoy ChefDLH
I cooked this for my hubby the other night and I would have to say that we felt lukewarm about it overall. I might have bought the chops too thick, but it took much longer than 3 minutes on each side to cook through resulting in some hard brown edges around the outside. If I make it again I will probably buy thinner chops and use the same spices because I thought they worked well with the pork. The apples were my favorite part of this recipe. I made them just as you indicated above and then added a few drops of vanilla extract towards the end of cooking. I really think the vanilla kicked up the flavor and reminded me of how apple pie tastes. I might add a little more sugar and cinnamon next time as well. Thanks for posting.
This was excellent! I mixed the pork seasoning as instructed, but only used about half of it. My wife and I both thought it was great. The kids liked the pork, but didn't care for the apples. Thanks for sharing!
