These pork chops are easy, but delicious. I haven't met a person who can resist them yet. I got the recipe from my mom.

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Peel, core, and quarter the apple. Then slice it very thinly (each quarter = 10-12 thin slices). Set aside for later.
  3. Lay the pork chops in baking dish with about 1 inch between each one.
  4. Lightly salt and pepper the chops and then sprinkle 2 Tbs. brown sugar over each pork chop trying to evenly cover them.
  5. Over the brown sugar put onion slices topped with apple slices. The apple slices should cover the entire pork chop.
  6. Pour 1.5 cups of applesauce over each pork chop.
  7. On top of each pork chop now shake soy sauce over each of the pork chops. Next, top with 1 Tbs. of brown sugar on each chop.
  8. Place in the oven for 35-45 minutes depending on your oven. Cut to check for tenderness and to make sure the chops are cooked.
