I don't know the exact recipe, my all my life I have loved my mother's apple pork chops. She cores the apple, cuts it in half across the core so that there is a hole through the middle. She arranges the chops in a single layer in a baking pan, puts an apple half on each one, and I think a dollop of brown sugar in the hole in the apple, and then bakes them till the chops are done. Then comes the best part.... she makes gravy for mashed potatoes from the drippings which have that apple tang... marvelous. Use a tart apple (winesap or granny smith), not delicious or some other sweet ones.

Me too!

Haha I guess alot of people like apples and pork, because i love it. My mom makes these delicious pork chops (I dont hae the recipe), and i would always dip them in applesauce. I will try baking apples as that sounds pretty good with the gravy and mashed potatos and all. I also wanted to know if there is something else that is good with pork, any suggestions?

in no particular order, I think these also go well with pork

black beans
peaches (see Jamie Oliver's recipe for pork roast stuffed w/peaches)
rice
pineapple
braised in chili sauce and red wine w/onions (my mom's specialty)

Sounds like you were somewhere between boiling and stewing.

There are a LOT of ways to cook pork chops with apples - as others have noted. But, using your recipe - sear the chops on each side for about 2-3 minutes, add 1-2 cups applejuice (it shouldn't be more than 1/4 up the side of the chops - helf that would be okay), when the juice comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and slap the lid on ... let it simmer (braise) for about 15-20 minutes.

RP - would you mind getting that recipe from your mom? That sounds like one of those "ulitmate comfort foods"!

Mitch, I am so impressed with your hunger for knowledge! You must also be a very good student in school. Good job, buddy.
