    A little dry, but good flavor. I saved the drippings and boiled them with a thick flour/water mixture to make gravy.

    I wasn't too impressed with the pork chops, I tend to like them a bit more flavored, but the kiddos and hubby LOVED them. I was surprised that the kiddo's even ate the onions. I served this with Garlic Pasta which is on this site also. I will say that the recipe was easy to make, only called for a few ingredients (which helps the budget) and was very easy to put together for a mid-week dinner. Overall I was happy. Next time I will add more pepper (for me) but I will make again

    Thanks for sharing all the feed back and suggestions for this recipe. I think you could even add some fresh garlic, apples and a little sage to up the flavor profile of this dish.

    Ingredients an flavors were almost good but it was way too bland and the sauce was so watery. Maybe thickening up the sauce at the end and using it as gravy would work better.

    Mackie, next time try using some apple jelly or frozen apple juice concentrate to help make a thicker sauce with for flavor. Also try stirring in a little cornstarch or making a roux to help thicken the sauce.

    It very much depends on the quality of the pork chops, apparently...delicious the first time, bland and tough the second time. Luck of the draw at the meat counter, I guess :( We use a natural apple juice that tastes almost like a cider which gives a nice flavor...and a little extra butter.

    Much drier second time around...don't think the quality of meat I got was as good, but also the flavor was much less.

    Humm Erika, the only thing I can think that might have altered this recipe and caused it to not be as good the second time around would be the quality of ingredients or maybe over cooking the pork chops causing them to be tougher. I would recommend using a thick bone-in pork chop next time, as meat cooked on the bone does tend to have more flavor and tends to be juicier. Just keep in mind that meat cooked on the bone will need to cook for a little bit longer (for this recipe about 10-12 minutes depending on how thick they are). Also try using apple cider instead of apple juice for more flavor.

    Really good and very easy. I think maybe I browned them a little too long, next time I'd like to give them more time in the apple juice. I threw in some garlic and a little extra butter and with the onions on top it was perfect. We had it with box mac & cheese and a green salad.

    I've tried a similar recipe but changed it up by using a homemade apple/pear sauce I had and fresh cracked black pepper. Everything was moist and flavorful. Just an idea.

    @Rebecca, sounds great! @Allys', I think that an apple/pear sauce would be divine with this dish. Great job!

    Flavor was ok. But, hey, it only took 20 minutes to cook. I might add garlic or use cinnamon apple sauce next time. Great for weeknights!

    Hi Dana! A 20 minute meal is always good especially after a long day! Adding some garlic, cinnamon, or applesauce would definitely dress this meal up with very little effort. I also suggest checking out some of them comments above for other recipe modifications and suggestions.

    I added nutmeg and a tiny bit of cinnamon to the flour mix and switched out salt for seasoned salt. I added a chopped apple (no skin) to the onion mix. I also upped the amount of apple juice and let it simmer down for 15 mins or so. AMAZING! My husband and I couldn't stop talking about it!

    I also added about 2 heaping spoonfuls of minced garlic to the onion and apple mix.

    I am using apple cider instead of juice and am letting the chops sit in the cider for a few hours I'm a little scared to try garlic in it especially since I am also using apples but I'm always open to new flavors!
