Wow, what a delicious meal this makes. The pork was very tender, and even though apples are often included in pork recipes, I'd never used them before when cooking with pork. I didn't know what I was missing! The only thing I did differently was to use regular long-grain rice instead of Minute Rice. I made it first, and then after cooking the other ingredients, I just put a little broth in the pan and laid the cooked rice on top of the pork chops, without mixing it in, so it would stay warm, but not get mushy while the the ingredients simmered for 10 minutes. This is my new favorite pork recipe, one that I'll be making over and over again. Thanks, Lainey for a terrific recipe!!
