Absolutely wonderful combination of flavors! I think I would call it "Sweet & Savory Apple Pork Chops" instead of 'sour', though. I didn't have the time to prep and bake, so I just did everything on the stove top: caramelized the onion, added the apple slices, softened, added applesauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Browned the chops in a separate pan, added them into the applesauce pan and let simmer/cook until no pink. It was delicious! Thank you for introducing me to this flavor combination.... It is a definite must have from now on!
It was really hard for me to put the soy sauce on top of the applesauce...it just seemed so wrong! However, it was REALLY good! The onions seemed like a weird choice too, but again, they were great and I'm glad I followed the recipe as it was. I do think that the 2 Tbls. of brown sugar on each chop could be a bit less, and there was no way that 1 1/2 cups of applesauce for each chop was going to fit in the pan. I used a 9 x 9 glass pan and pretty much filled it to the top with apple sauce before using all the applesauce. The only thing I would do differently the next time would be to drain the applesauce first since it was a just bit runny after cooking. All in all, I'm glad I went out of my comfort zone and made this dish! Thanks!
