Stuffed Apple Pork Chops

My family has used apples for many great dishes, including this pork chop recipe from my grandmother that I adapted for two. It uses apples, apple butter and apple cider. My boyfriend loves it served with a baked sweet potato and green salad. —Heather Kenney, Arlington, Virginia

    The flavor combination was fantastic. I doubled the recipe to feed my family and everyone loved it. The local butcher butterflied the pork chops for me. Thank you.
