Pork Chops with Cider Sauce

This dish puts a spin on the traditional pork chops and applesauce. Instead, the chops are simmered in apple cider to give them a very unique flavor. The pictures of this really do not do it justice, it's really good. If you like pork chops and applesauce, then this recipe is definitely for you.
