Food Friday: Easy Pork Chops and Apples

Posted by on May 4, 2012

This meal has always been an easy family favorite (what kid doesn’t like apples with brown sugar and cinnamon?). But I discovered something new about it this past week. It is a great dish to prepare ahead of time.

Last Saturday morning we received an invite to come over and hang out at my sister-in-law’s house so the kids could play. My sister-in-law said that we could also all make dinner together. I told her I’d bring the main dish. So I basically made these Saturday morning (up to the very last step – 7) and then covered and refrigerated them. That afternoon, I stuck them in the oven at her place and voila! we had dinner! (I don’t have a picture of the finished dish. I forgot!)

Note: I usually use six or seven apples because my family likes them so much.

    Stephanie,
    This is the first time I’ve done it ahead of time and frankly, I didn’t even look at the apples before I stuck the whole thing in the oven. Once the apples are cooked, they are a golden brown anyway … if that helps.

    Ok, I have a question….how do you prepare apples ahead of time without them turning brown? Mine always turn brown unless I douse them in lemon juice and sometimes I just don’t want to have that strong lemon flavor with apples. This looks like it would be really good.
