  1. Yum. Pork chops and apples. Classic!!! I loved the simplicity of the recipe. Made for CQ 2014 and the Cake Pops!
  2. When I first looked at this recipe I thought it called for pork tenderloins, so that was what I bought, however when I began to make it tonight I realized it was for chops. So I sliced the tenderloins into about 12 one 1.5" thick chops. The recipe doesn't call for peeling the apples so I didn't, but both DH and DD both thought the thinly sliced apple skin didn't enhance the dish as they got stuck in their teeth. I also quartered the pecans so DH and DD could pick them out easily. I also served the chops with the apple pecan mixture on top. All and all I thought it was a great Fall dish and I will be making it again. Made for Fall Photo tag.
  3. Delicious! We both raved about this, and it was so quickly made. I used the tart apples from my garden which usually are very dry, but this recipe is perfect for them. And I halved the recipe for the two of us and used only 1 teaspoon brown sugar, that was just perfect.<br/>Thanks for sharing!!<br/>Made for CQ 2014
  4. This is my favorite recipe for pork chops yet. It is super easy to make. I've tweaked it to use Granny Smith apples. I add two apples because we like the apples so much. We also use an extra tbsp of butter. It is definitely worth trying at least once. It is very inexpensive.
  5. Other than cutting the recipe in half for the 2 of us, it was pretty much followed, & the chops were absolutely delicious! We loved the cinnamon apple nut combo with the pork & will certainly be making these again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Went to the Market recipe tag]
