"Pan-fried pork chops with a rich, creamy sauce featuring mushrooms and apples makes a terrific main dish. The sauce is wonderful served over mashed potatoes with steamed garlic green beans. It's a family favorite!"

edited: This is a nice, easy dish to prepare. The chops were incredibly moist & tender & the sauce was pleasant. Browning the chops in butter was an excellent way to boost flavor, but to ensure they were well-done, I put the oven higher to 350 so they could finish there while the sauce was prepared; they were perfect. I omitted the brandy. The mushroom & apple flavors were weak. Overall, the sauce was less flavored than I had expected, the mushrooms & apple flavors were obscured. A calvados instead of any old brandy might help boost the apple flavor. I also used unsalted butter, & a generous pinch of kosher salt helped boost the flavor. Some fresh parsley would probably be a good addition. I made this again, curdling problem not repeated. It still needs a strong boost of apple flavor, though. I increased the cider and reduced it to about a quarter. I made up the difference in the liquid by adding more cider; I reduced it again to about half per the original recipe. I didn't want to use something heavy & risk diluting the apple flavor, so I warmed some whole milk in the microwave instead of cream (about 1/8 cup, maybe a little more, but under 1/4 cup) & whisked it in slowly. Next time, I'll try adding some calvados & see what that gets me.
MADE THIS RECIPE FOR SOME FRIENDS COULDN'T BELIEVE I MADE IT HOME THOUGHT I HAD IT DELIVERED FROM CATERER MADE SLIGHT CHANGE INSTEAD OF REGULAR BRANDY USED APPLEJACK BRANDY
This was good. The mix of the cider, brandy, and pork was different and offered a unique taste. I added rosemary and basil to add a more full-bodied flavor. I also added 1/2 cup of applesauce to increase the apple flavor. My family liked it and I do believe we will make this again.
Nice taste enjoyed by both my wife and I
This was wonderful! My husband made this for me and it was one of the best meals we've ever had. It had an amazing flavor that we couldn't get enough of! Thanks for the recipe.
Thumbs up from the whole family! I didn't have brandy so took another's advice and used schnapps that I had on hand. Mine was butterscotch. I also doubled the cider vinegar and cream, my guys like extra sauce. They also don't go for mushrooms so I used three apples and they gobbled it up!
I jazz the sauce up, added about 2 Oz flour to the mushroom sauce and add 1/2 cup more of half and half with 1/4 cup of brandy, put slice apple of the meat and poured the mushroom sauce over the meat, baked a 325 oven for 45 mins covered with foil.
Delish!! I was too cheap to buy brandy (in WA we have insane alcohol taxes)but had peach Schnapp's in the freezer and used that. It was sweet but very good!! I can see how the brandy would give it a deeper richness to the gravy but the Schnapp's worked pretty good, too. I especially liked the pyro effect!! I'd never put a flame to anything I'd cooked, so this was a ton of fun!! The chops were tender, as well. This is a def winner in my kitchen and will be made again and again.
