The first time I made this recipe, I thought the sauce was too watery at serving time. (I make it in a covered corning ware glass dish--maybe that made a difference?!?!) I've made it several times since, and now I always double the brown sugar, mustard and cloves, but keep the water at 3/4 cup. I think it tastes richer this way. We all love it. Also, I've made it both with fresh apples and also with canned. Both are good.


After reading all the negative rewiews, I almost didn't try this recipe. I am really glad that I did. Here's what I did. I sauted the onions and apple slices in butter, then put them in my crock pot. Next I browned the pork chops in a little butter and cooking spray, and put them on top of the apple mixture. I put about 2 cups of chunky applesauce on top of the chops, then poured the spices (doubled) and 3/4 cup of apple juice on top. I cooked it on low for about 10 hours. We LOVED the flavor! Some of the reviews said there was no flavor in the meat, but using the crock pot let the flavors soak into the meat wonderfully! Try it this way and I'm sure you will agree. Sherry


I also read the reviews to get useful tips - thank you users for your ideas! I first covered the pork chops in chopped onion, minced garlic and pepper and let them season in the refrigerator all afternoon. I came home from work, sauteed them in a skilled and transferred them to a baking dish. I placed the apple slices on top and poured my modified sauce. I used orange juice instead of water; added cinnamon as well as cloves; used prepared sweet hot mustard; added more brown sugar and added about 2 tablespoons of flour. I whisked this all together and poured over the top. I then added several baby carrots wherever they would fit in the dish. WONDERFUL! The sauce was thick like gravy, sweet and was excellent! Although I don't like baked apples, they added some terrific flavor and I would not leave them out. Make some garlic-herb roasted buttered potato chunks and you have a quick meal that can baked while you unwind after a long day at work! Definitely will make again!
