Pork Chops and Apple Bake

“This is a simple put together meal that tastes like you cooked for hours! I made these tonight using what I had in hand and what I knew I liked. A different taste with the sweet aroma of baked apples and the tanginess from the garlic and balsamic vinegar. It provided a suttle differences with each bite. My DH and DS liked this very much. I served with baby sweet peas and smashed potatoes. The sauce can be made into a gravy but the family was hungry so I used the remaining juice as an au jus.”
