I read EVERY single review of this recipe before I made it b/c I was skeptical of using ketchup with apples. I should have followed my instinct. No one would even touch the apples and we had to use bbq sauce to cover the pork chops. Save your ingredients for something else b/c if you think it looks bad, it tastes worse.

I liked this recipe. I didn't find it too sweet but that might be becuase I served it over rice with steamed vegetables so there was a good balance. My one gripe would be that I followed the advice of others and seared the meat first which I found, after baking for 45 minutes left my chops a little on the dry side. Next time, I'll probably just stick to recipe directions and not fry ahead of time. Also the suggestion to bake the chops and apples over a bed of onions was a good idea and really added to the flavor of the dish!

Extremely flavorful and juicy. Added sauted onion, deleted ketchup, and sprinkled cinnamon and brown sugar over apples. Will make again.

the ketchup will ruin this recipe! so we didn't use it. add sliced onions to this recipe. (the bed of onions was a good tip!) I layered all in a pan starting with onions in the bottom of the pan spread evenly, pork chops next with salt and pepper sprinkle, then the apples, a little cinnamon and the brown sugar. they were moist and delicious. i would make this again for company.

Ohmygoodness.. GOOD! I read the suggestions from the others. I decided on this: I peppered chops and layed them on a bed of onions. Cut up some apples and put them on. Sprinkled w brown sugar and drizzled with reg bbq sauce. 350 in oven until done. It was pretty, chops were tender, my apples were perfect, taste was wonderful. This, indeed, will be a regular in my house. Many thanks. (even better the next day!)

This is a very good recipe. I agree it doesn't look the best but it was very tasty. My kids loved it!!!

The pork chops turned out tough and dry and the ketchup dried on the apples and it didn't look very appetizing. I won't be making this again.

I made tis for my family last night.Everyone loved it. I found that the apples released a great deal of juice. After the chops were done I removed them fom the pan and kept them warm while I reduced the pan juices and added a bit of butter, maybe 2 tablespoon, to add richness. Made a great sauce. Thank you. I will use often.
