When my mom would make pork chops she always served applesauce. Now, it could be because she baked the pork chops into but I like to believe it’s because applesauce goes well with pork. No matter what the reason, when I think of pork chops, I think about dipping them into applesauce. This, of course, makes me think of mom.
Recently I’ve become obsessed with my crockpot, it may be because I got a new one for Christmas or if it’s because life’s been busy but I still need healthy food to feed the family. I adapted this recipe from a chicken recipe. I think next time I will put a little less pepper in it as my Little Guy didn’t seem to care for it. My husband loved it. My daughter ate it OK, but again I think a little less pepper would help her out too. I personally really liked it. The pork was moist and basically broke apart.
Applesauce Pork Chops
4 Pork Chops (I used thin cut but I think bone-in ones would work good too)
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Applesauce
1 T Dried Onion Flakes
1 T Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Black Pepper (I plan to cut it back to 1/4 next time)
2 Cloves Garlic
Place pork chops in the bottom of a crockpot. I used a 6 quart but think it would be more appropriate in a smaller one 3 or 4 quart. In a bowl mix together all other ingredients and pour over the pork chops. Cook high 3-4 hours or low 5-7, I did a combination of high and low and it cooked fairly quickly.
