    Yummy

    Olivia Patla from Arizona

    This is super easy and fast to make...it has a completely different taste, but it's actually very good. Nice change from a sauce. But I think anything with the wild mushroom agnolotti will be good. Bye bye Olive Garden...hello Buitoni!

    New Family Fav

    Christina from Gaithersburg, MD

    First of all I have to start by saying I think this recipe would taste best cooked at low heat in the oven or in a crock pot for a few hours. I did not do that but I think I will try it next time. After reading other reviews I added a few things to the recipe. First I chopped the onion and sauteed it in the butter until it became soft. Right before taking it off the heat I added the garlic, which I increased to 4 cloves, and cooked for about a minute longer. I removed the onion mixture from the pan, added more butter and cooked the pork chops as the recipe says. I used apple cider instead of juice and added rosemary, allspice, cinnamon, 1 applepeeled, cored and sliced, and some raisins. #160It could also use a little more salt and pepper. It was good and my picky toddler gobbled it up. So mission accomplished. Enjoy! :

    Wonderful - absolutely wonderful!

    Marion Sakowitz from VA

    I decided to make this for dinner tonight after reading the other reviews. I used some of the tips in the reviews and the dish was a huge hit with my husband (whose comment is the review title). I didn't have any apple juice, so I used a combination of 1/2 cup apple butter thinned with 1/8 cup bourbon and water to make 1 1/2 cups total. My chops were a little thicker than 1/2", so I cooked them a bit longer, and they still came out so flavorful and juicy. I will definitely make this again.

    pretty good!

    Danielle Kreske from delaware

    this recipe turned out pretty good. i think next time i will doctor it up by using apple cider instead of apple juice and also apple slices and some dried cranberry..

    Upgrade Flavor

    Geraldine Holsinger from KY

    Good meal but can be updated if you really like apples. Slice a yellow or golden delicous apple into thin slices, sprinkle a "little" cinnamon over apples and cook over top of meat about 10 minutes before serving. A great lift in flavor.

    Easy and Quick

    Deanne Grizzell from Glendale, AZ

    To make this receipe elegant and add extra flavor include the following. 1) add pumpkin spice to the apple juice. 2) Place apple slices and dried cranberries on top on the pork chops while they are simmering. For an adult version I add 1/8 of a cup Bourbon to the apple juice. My family and friends love this receipe. The pork chops come out tender and favorable.

    Needs Flavor

    Leo from Miami, FL

    This recipe was easy but for me it needed a kick of something.. maybe a dash of cayenne pepper for some spice and a bit of garlic powder would have given it that extra ummmph it needed. It was a bit to bland for my taste.

    Yum!!

    Val from

    This dish was excellent! I am not a fan of Apple Juice by any means...never have been and yet I couldn't stay away from this recipe; I am glad I didn't because it was quick, easy, and delicious. I thought for sure I would taste the apple juice and hate it, but I loved it and more immportantly so did the kids and hubby. Definitely something I will make again. It went great with rice and fresh steamed veggies.

    WONDERFUL

    Candace from Boston

    I made this last night for our Sunday dinner, my stepdaughter laughed at the thought of me using Juicy Juice Apple Juice as a part of the sauce, but she liked it so much she is actually taking the leftovers for her lunch today! Definitely a KEEPER!

    BEST PORK CHOPS!

    Jennifer Scott from Huntsville, AL

    I made these pork chops last night, and they were the best ever. Even my picky 4 year-old ate them. They were so juicy, and all the ingredients were things I already had. Thanks for another great recipe.

    yum-yum

    elizabeth cazares from san antonio

    I made 3 different recipes for pork chops and this one was my favorite. My sister loved it too. My husband is not crazy about sweet stuff so it wasn't his favorite. It's rare that i eat pork chops MAYBE 1 a year but with this recipe i might make it on a monthly basis.

    Juicy Apple Pork Chops

    Jeannette from Schaumburg,IL

    I doubled the recipe and used a 1/4 less apple juice so there wouldn't so much liquid left over, and used more onions & used frozen concentrate already had in freezer. It was wonderful aroma in the house, I wasn' sure it would taste good, family absolutely loved it. Served it with augrain potatoes & salad. This is a real keeper. No more dry pork chops for a family of 7. Thank you.

    Best Pork Chops Yet!

    Bonnie from Oviedo, FL

    These have to be the best pork chops I've ever tasted! They're not too sweet, have GREAT flavor & are perfectly juicy. There were a few more spices in mine because I bought the pre-seasoned pork chops from Albertsons, but added more salt & pepper. Normally I'm not a big fan of pork chops because they're usually a little dry and tough, but like I can't stop saying, these were perfect!!!

    Decent...

    Michelle from Iowa City

    This recipe was tasty, but for me just had too much onion taste in it. I would recommend using a sweeter onion so it is not as powerful.

    It Works....

    CG from Elgin, IL

    ....and is so good..!!! I think either white or the red balsamic works, a differance of taste. As for the sugar I think it helps, if you want the little kick, especially with the fresh cracked black pepper..!! Try this it will please..!!

    Easy and Delicious!

    JULIE REGGIO from Louisville, TN

    This recipe is easy and was a pleasure to make. The reduced balsamic vinegar makes a decadent glaze. The brown sugar on strawberries turns the strawberry juice into a beautiful semi-sweet strawberry glaze. Follow the directions and don't skip any ingredients! You're taste buds will be happy you stuck to the game plan! I can't wait to make this for friends! It looks great when served in Martini glasses too, with a small lemon slice on the rim of the glass!

    Why?

    Mrs.W from Central, NY

    Good recipe, but there's no reason to sweeten the balsamic before reducing--the act of reducing makes it quite sweet enough. Also no need to add brown sugar to strawberries if they're ripe already, but if they're not quite sweet, the balsamic will help them out. White balsamic vinegar is even nicer.
