Good Monday to all. Thank you for taking time from your busy lives to stop and read my blog. It is greatly appreciated. I hope you find the information posted here useful.
A couple of weeks ago when I cooked up some apples for apple butter, I had extra applesauce so made one of our favorite pork dishes.
This is basically pork chops baked in applesauce gravy. Applesauce goes so well with pork, and this dish takes advantage of that fact. My applesauce was pretty chunky. Purchased applesauce would be much smoother. The brown gravy mix and onion turns the applesauce into a delicious apple flavored gravy to serve over the pork chops and rice, noodles or even mashed potatoes. I don't use gravy mix often but love it in this recipe. One could maybe use some instant beef bouillon instead.
It is a easy, simple dish that goes together quickly and then bakes in the oven allowing you to prepare the rest of your dinner.
