This recipe for Drunken Apple Pork Chops is a delicious twist on my original recipe.
This recipe quickly became one of our favorite quick and easy recipes. I love it because the pork chops are smothered in sweet apples and onions and simmered in a decadent sauce made from Angry Orchard Hard Cider.
Angry Orchard is one of my favorite adult beverages. I love the crisp apple taste — it reminds me fall all year long.
