I made this last night for a REALLY picky eater. so I cut out the currants & raisins & used only apples. I had no olive oil, so I cooked the apples in leftover bacon drippings & used a mixture of apple juice and sherry instead of marsala and cider. Instead of cooking spray, I used regular vegetable oil & used ground rosemary instead of leaves (had none!). This was the first time I've cooked for someone in about 3 years, and it was absolutely scrumptious. I added lemon pepper butter to cteamed broccoli & parsley butter to boiled whole mini red skinned potatoes. The picky eater wanted seconds of everything, but there was only 1 chop & some sauce leftover which he wanted to save for lunch. I was looking for a really simple recipe with apples & pork chops - and this was it! It was easy to make the changes I did, the flavoring is so uncomplicated that it's perfect for my taste. There were no kids eating, but I know kids who are way less picky than my friend, so I'd guess they'd love it too. Thank you for giving me the means to make a great impression. Next time he'll be a lot more likely to try something different again because it turned out so well the first time.

I don't eat much pork, but I wanted to try something different. It sounded good, but it just wasn't what I was expecting.

I really thought this recipe was great, with excellent flavor! I used thinner, sliced sirloin pork chops that cooked quickly, dried cherries instead of the currents, and the apple cider I had in the fridge. I suggest using more rosemary (for stronger flavor) and more cider to maintain the liquidity of the sauce once it begins to reduce for the second time.

Instead of currants, we used dried cranberries. It was delicious!

The combination of currants, raisins and apples gave these chops great flavor!

My husband said to me after eating this for dinner, "If I were at a restaurant that served this, I would be recommending it to all of my friends." It was an excellent meal.

This was great! The only one who balked at it was my 5 yr old, and she doesn't like anything. I used apple juice instead of cider or marsala (I didn't have any),but that was the only thing I altered.

The rosmarin is not enough, you need more for this amount of meat. just see how much you need and how spicy you want the meat. Tried it without the currants and its great.
