Start with some pork chops. I used 1 inch slices of pork loin. A touch of salt and pepper and a good brush of Dijon and honey. Then slow cook for 7-8 hours until fall apart tender.

This is somewhat of a backwards rating. My wife gave it a 5. I’m a solid mid-4. Kind of backwards…

Notes: My loin chops I felt were little dry and higher fat pork chop would correct this (hence my 4). My wife could have eaten another.

Cutting pork chops from loin

I generally cut my “pork chops” from whole pork loins. I guess you would call that pork loin chops. These are 1 inch thick.

    I made these for dinner tonight & will definitely be doing so again.
    I tripled the recipe because I was feeding a family, but followed the recipe exactly and have to agree with you that the chops were a little dry, but like you I used lean. Next time I’ll be sure to use some with a least a little marbling. I thought no liquid was an oversight, but didn’t add any, which was a good thing because the apples & pork provided plenty of their own. Thanks for a good, really easy recipe.

      I really like the taste and it is very easy. A bone-in chop with a little fat would take care of the dryness but I’m a health guy so I will stay lean.
      Thanks for the note.

    I tried this recipe today with a bone-in pork chop. I thought it was delicious. I do have a question. What type apple would be best? I used golden delicious. The pieces that cooked in the natural juices got very mushy. While it me it was good, I just wondered if a different apple could stand up better.
