  • 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.

  • Place pork chops in the same skillet; cook over medium heat until pork chops are browned on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.

  • Mix applesauce, brown sugar, mustard, and cinnamon into onion and apple mixture.

  • Place pork chops in a 9x9-inch baking dish; season with salt and black pepper. Spoon applesauce mixture over pork chops; cover dish.

  • 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! Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

I really loved this recipe. I hardly ever cook pork so I was afraid I'd overcook it but it turned out great. Firstly I doubled the recipe so my fiance and I would have leftovers for the next day. Instead of using canned applesauce I just bought a few extra apples diced them heated on a skillet until tender and then added about 2 tbsp (i may have gone overboard;) of brown sugar to make the applesauce (i'm not a huge fan of cinnamon so I didn't add any to that). Then instead of using butter to cook the apple/onion mixture I used vegetable oil. I followed the rest of the recipe as-is and man did they turn out awesome. The cook time was about 35 minutes in the oven on 375. Read More

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. Read More
