  1. After reading reviews of a few of this type of recipe, I decided to embellish this one a little. I did use bone in pork chops. I used 4 golden delicious apples , peeled and sliced. Made a mixture of 1/2 cup Brown sugar and 1 tsp of dry mustard. (no nutmeg) The rest is the same with the exception of after placing the first layer of apples, I sprinkled some of the brown sugar mixture, then the pork chops. and continued the layers the same just adding the brown sugar mixture over each layer of the apples. It came out spectacular! my family went bonkers for them!
  2. This was a nice recipe that kept the pork chops nice & moist & tender. There isn't a whole lot of apple flavour - I'm wondering if a little bit of brown sugar would have brought that out a little more.
  3. Easy recipe. I have Rival Crock Pot and 7-9 hours was way too much time on low. I would say 5-6 hours would be better. My chops actually dried out and started burning on the edges that were in contact with the crock...we just ate what wasn't overcooked. That said, good flavor, easy to make and, with a little bit of salt, very good. I think with a time adjustment, this is a keeper recipe.


<p>My rating system: (I don't like giving bad reviews, so if I don't like it, I'll just not review it.) <br /><br />5 Stars OMG, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
