  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and apple slices in the melted butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer onion and apple to a bowl.
  3. Place pork chops in the same skillet; cook over medium heat until pork chops are browned on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
  4. Mix applesauce, brown sugar, mustard, and cinnamon into onion and apple mixture.
  5. Place pork chops in a 9x9-inch baking dish; season with salt and black pepper. Spoon applesauce mixture over pork chops; cover dish.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until pork chops are no longer pink in the center, about 30 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

This is my second time commenting on this in a week! I made these again in my crock pot, and they came out even better! I definitely recommend doing it that way!

I'm tired of making pork chops the same old way, with breadcrumbs and either fired or baked. I just tried this recipe and I'm VERY disappointed!

This is a great one. It is simple, but adds a lot of flavor to the pork. I did omit the ground mustard, and used cinnamon applesauce instead of cinnamon and applesauce. Worked well! Great with some garlic-onion mashed potatoes and green beans!

Those were awesome, and so easy! I added a little bit of apple cider vinegar (maybe about 2 tbs) to offset the sweetness in the sauce, and seasoned the chops with thyme before browning them. I did not have an apple on hand so I left that out and it was still delicious.

This recipe is fantastic! The pork chops were so tender and flavorful. The onions and spices mixed with the apples and applesauce were a delicious combination that were the perfect compliment to the pork. The recipe was easy to follow and quick to put together. This will definitely become a family favorite.

This dish was very good. I made it exactly as called for,but I used an oven proof skillet instead of transferring to a 9x9 pan. Saved washing an extra pan.

So fabulous. Like some of the others, I seasoned the pork with garlic salt and pepper before browning. I finished it stove-top as I am "oven-impaired" at the moment. Just delicious and what a lovely aroma on a drizzly day.
