1 (21 ounce) can
cherry pie filling
This is a great recipe. It just needs a bit of doctoring. I made it once with the cherry filling and felt it was just missing something. So, I added a tablespoon of lemon juice and some allspice and nutmeg to the recipe. It gave it just the right holiday feeling I was trying to achieve.
This recipe couldn't be easier but it's lacking flavor. I have a similar recipe for a pork roast with cranberry sauce that adds dry mustard and ground cloves. Maybe that would spice it up. Probably not something I'd make again.
I made this tonight, but I made several changes. Number 1, I didn't cook it in a crock pot...didn't want to deal with burning/sticking. I seasoned pork chops with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Browned in olive oil. I made the "Cherry Sauce for Ham" recipe from this site (pie filling, tablespoon brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon mustard). I poured the sauce over the chops and basted them and turned them in the sauce several times. Placed lid on chops for a few minutes to finish cooking. Very tender and lightly cherry flavored. Served with garlic dill steamed new potatoes.
I didn't have Cherry but I had apples! It was GREAT!
Thank you so much for posting this recipe!!! My mother made this when we were kids and I have been looking for it. She served it with mashed potatos and it was great. The filling mixed with the chop juices makes a fantastic gravy. The kids loved it!!! The easiest and best tasting dish ever.
I substituted apple pie filling instead of cherry. I also used 2 cans, layering pie filling, pork chops, pie filling. The chops were probably the tenderest I ever made.
well .. this was an interesting one.. different than I had ever done with pork chops.. i used my fav. pork chop spices along with the cherries.. cumin and garlic and papper.. feeling brave i'll tell you.. adding garlic and cumin to a dish with Cherries!! :) It was interesting and quite Okay for dinner.. the leftovers made five star sandwiches.
Everyone at the table ate up and said they would like to have it again. I want to add that the left over meat and sauce made OUTSTANDING sandwiches. The family liked this for dinner and RAAAVED over it the next day in sandwiches and continue to request more of it for sandwiches. Oh.. and it helps to brown the chops before putting into the crock pot because, in my opinion, the flavor and presentation appeal are improved that way.
We used apple pie filling also and it was delicious! So easy to prepare and tasted like I spent all day on it.
